Itâ??s not everyday that a top Microsoft executive answers a question related to Windows 8, but Achim Berg, Deutschland-Chef von Microsoft (CEO of Microsoft Germany), is the exception that confirms the rule. Asked about the successor of Windows 7, Berg says that Microsoft is not sleeping. While this answer is nothing more than a confirmation of the fact that Windows 8 is in the works, in planning stage as far as the company has suggested, it is also as evasive as possible.
