    Windows 8 Work Began 2 Years Ago


    Work on Windows 8 began long before Windows 7 was ever finalized, at least two years ago.

    Confirmation of this came from Renée J. James, Senior Vice President, General Manager, Software and Services Group for Intel which also provided some additional juicy details related to Windows vNext.

    James claims that Windows 8 will feature a traditional version for x86 CPUs (sporting the new Windows 7 Mode) as well as an ARM flavor, with the software giant expanding support to Systems on a Chip.

    I personally feel Win7 was a gui rewrite of Vista. it was pushed out fast, and fixed alot of the main issues with Vista. So this doesn't surprise me.

I have been using Windows 8 for 2 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.
