    Waiting for Eight


    Just for fun, I created a countdown timer to the release of Win 8. Purely a guess as to the actual date, I used Oct 20, 2012. Wait 4 Eight

    If 8 comes late, that will be poetically unpunctual.

    I hope the delay means they're fixing most of the bugs BEFORE it comes to market! (Never happen, of course.)

    A little Windows 8 haiku I made

    We'll all wait for Eight
    It'll probably come late
    But it will be great

    I think that's actually good. After all the broo-ha-ha over Vista, we should have time to really enjoy Windows 7 for a while.
