    Windows Vista-Windows 7-8


    I think it should be 8.XXX becuase then apple will critize microsoft for just another update, instead of a new os.

    It's quite possible that this Kernal will be implemented.

    I don't think they will skip an entire number just so the kernel number matches the OS name, so I'm thinking it will be 7.0.
