    Maybe a little far-fetched...

    How about Windows 8 being able to recognize and install all the required 64 bit drivers for any hardware connected to all computers...

    That would be one advanced and intuitive OS, wouldn't it?

    But for real:
    1. USB 3.0...
    2. A completely overhauled and intuitive filing system (something to vastly improve on just folders)...
    3. Recognition and seamless integration of multiple OS's...
    4. A search engine that doesn't just tell you how many hits and pages, but makes computational use of your queries... Oops, already here check out http://www.wolframalpha.com/ ...
    5. Software that catches up to the multiple core processors, by then possibly 8 - 16 cores...

    You get my drift...

    Windows 7 RTM (x64)


    PC's THEMSELVES: Monitors, Keyboard, Mice, and Speakers become much smaller and slimmer. Towers become very small, albeit still able to contain normal-sized parts. All-in-ones similar to iMacs begin to emerge, as manufacturers begin making peripherals specific for them.

    OPERATING SYSTEMS: Cloud-style Computing becomes the standard, as things like Social Networking and E-Commerce have their own apps. The Web Browser slowly begins to become outdated.

    DISPLAY: 1680x1050 becomes the new 1024x768. By de facto law, CRT monitors are not allowed to be sold in stores. LED/OLEDs dominate the market, with touch displays emerging.

    CPU: Quad/Octo Core processors become the standard. Average speed: 4-6GHz.

    RAM: DDR3 RAM becomes the standard. 4GB becomes the new 1GB. High-end builds will have 8-10GB's.

    GRAPHICS: 2GB-4GB cards emerge, Pixel Shader 4.0/5.0 releases.

    PORTS: USB 3.0 becomes the standard; HDMI replaces VGA/DVI.

    STORAGE: SSD's become the standard, with 1-5TB's taking the lead.

    I don't think that Cam's suggestions sound totally out of place.
