Did someone say there is a LEAK
Is it called Windows Next again, Windows Blue or Windows Nine?
It's gotta be in Alpha stage by now.
Some Rumors:That's much faster and a good thing for people upgrading to Windows 8 on an existing PC. But it also makes it more plausible that Microsoft will deliver a new version of Windows far more often than we're used to. We've already argued that we might see Windows shift to yearly versions, and Mary Jo Foley reports sources saying a new release of Windows, codename Blue, could ship in 2013.
CES 2014: Windows 9 Beta
Mix 2014: 9 Release Candidate Windows
Building 2014: RTM of Windows 9
November 2014: Windows Release 9
It will be interesting to see if Microsoft plans to release Windows nine two years after the company released Windows 8 to the public.

I agree, also Windows XP was the FIRST EVER O.S. to be shipped with Tablet-P.C.'s, it was the basis for the Xbox and Windows Mobile 2003.
Also Windows 8 is another O.S. used to try and unify Microsoft's O.S.'es into one large ''Microsoft Ecosystem'' and this time it will be succesful because the thing Windows 8 has that Windows XP didn't have is Microsoft SkyDrive to give all O.S.'es one unified experience, Windows 8 runs Xbox LIVE, Zune's marketplace (as Xbox Music & Xbox Video, respectively) and all (FORMER-)Windows Live-(Cloud-)Sevices are bundled with Windows 8 (excluding a handful which will probably be included in the Blue-update).
And to go back to the article, it makes a lot of sense, too. It took more than 10 years before users started to love the XP but Microsoft didn't care and changed it again. Have they not learned anything from XP experience??? If this is some kind of trend, then we should not attach ourselves too much with Win 7 or Win 8 because it will be another big shock for everyone if Microsoft suddenly decides to change it again.
What, no one could fine a new article depicting hatred for windows 8 so they dug up an old one to see if they could get something going again. . .
I thought the same thing when I saw this, Lee.
