    Well we have to have something to talk about or rumors to spread.

    While we're speculating, I'll speculate that since Windows 8 will speculatively come out on the 4th of July that Microsoft will grace the release with a special Windows 8 fireworks display, complete with a flower grouping that will produce the Windows 8 logo in the sky.

    If we're going to spread rumors, why not that there's an Easter Egg embedded in the DOS of Windows 8, type in the secret code and you see a aski-Zen00 dancing the Macarena across the screen.

    In the recent windows weekly podcast, Paul Thurrot mentioned that Microsoft is doing more so that they aren't setting everything to a deadline, that they will work on a project until it is satisfactory. Apparently, this contributed in part to windows 7's success and other parts of microsoft are mimicking this behavior.

    Just wanted to throw this out there~

    I remember him mentioning about a week ago how other departments were imitating the Windows 7 launch in hopes of being more successful.

    Win 8 Release date?


    According to one of our competitors win 8 release date has been "leaked"

    The Microsoft Kitchen blog covered the leak blaming Green for leaving the useful information buried in something else. The future product names in Green's chart are followed by question marks. Green's MSDN blog includes a statement that the opinions in the blog "are not intended to represent my employer's view." Green apparently was trying to provide a helpful overview of mainstream support and extended support time periods for existing Microsoft products. However the future product dates, which no one knew stayed in the chart. If Green's is right, then below are the RTM dates for products that Microsoft has not yet announced:

    "Windows 8" on July 1, 2011.

    I do not vouch for its reliability, but it is interesting.

    Thanks for that Ken, its got to be rumour mill again, I just cannot see Microsoft calling it Windows 8 yet it will be given a code name first for alpha surely, then a year before launch it will be named
