    Windows 8 to be released in two years ?



    In its most concrete comments yet about the next version of Windows, Microsoft said in a blog post on its Dutch Web site that Windows 8 is about two years from hitting the market.

    Microsoft is working on the next version of Windows, the blog says in Dutch, but it will be about two years before Windows 8 is on the market.

    Microsoft's Dutch subsidiary posted a blog Sunday that says the company is working on Windows 8 but that the new operating system is not due for about two years.

Just noticed that I have been using windows 8 as my main system for 2 years. Started with Build 7850 on 13th April 2011. I really like it and I installed a start button on one of my computers and had to try to remember how to open programs etc. I think I will stick to the Modern UI.
