    yes i agree an official beta version of windows 8 does sound great. Appears we may have a chance to have a better in depth copy of the operating system

    I have XP/win7U/7955/winTPC all on 1 HDD, two weeks ago I took it to a PC shop for check-up. the guy asked me if I were a MS people.

    I let him copy the 7955 ISO and didn't have to pay anything for the check-up.

    So with that in mind the fact that the same drivers work for 8 as 7 I guess that means windows 8 is vista sp5. Nothing new because Microsoft is too afraid to take any real risks after the vista flop. So were all doomed to another decade of x86 processors and crappy old hardware because some idoit in Arkansas still has a printer that wouldn't work.
    I'm truely saddend by this but I guess it doesn't really matter considering how amd must have just given up anyway. PassMark Intel vs AMD CPU Benchmarks - High End I guess when my computer becomes obsolete I'll just get an ipad 3. Oh wait my computer will never be obsolete thanks Microsoft.
    I'm not sure but I think he means there is nothing really new other than a few minor graphical changes and little tidbits. Legacy hardware support has nothing to due to making an OS different.

    We might see a few new things, but I'm guessing just a simple general intro to windows 8 and a beta closer to august or september

    September sounds about right, in considering the speed of how the builds have been going the past month, it is probably safe to say 5-7 months for a beta.

    I'm almost sure that Microsoft has a event in September, so it could be then.

    I somehow keep thinking that Windows 7 has actually been released too early in order to get as much people off Vista as possible, as soon as possible, because of its dramatic past of negative comments and reviews, and that many features we've seen through Win8 leaks could have already been implemented.
    This is also why I don't really understand Microsoft pushing Win8 so soon, too. With 7 being embraced in a much better light than Vista, they have a better starting point in evolving their OS, and I personally see no reason for "rushing things". Maybe that's just me, though.

    The fact is that, as much as Windows 7 was good, 8 will be even better, even if the name stays vNext *shivers*

    Agreed. Windows 7 is a very good OS and Windows 8 (or whatever) will be even better

    Just my thoughts...
