    Windows 8 starts to come into focus

    Here we go its at the planning stage

    I get questions periodically about whether Windows 7 marks the end of the Microsoft operating system road.

    Some users wonder whether will Microsoftâ??s next version of Windows be completely cloud-based? Will it be Midori with the Windows name slapped on it?

    No and no. The bottom line: Windows isnâ??t done when Windows 7 is released to manufacturing (most likely in late fall 2009). Windows 8 has been on the drawing board/planning stages for a while now. And as the â??Codename Windowsâ?ť blog recently reported, Microsoft is starting to hire developers specifically for Windows 8.

    I doubt it would take them till 2010. For all we know there ARE alpha builds that haven't been leaked. When we get the leaked/official beta builds then we'll know.

    I am awake again. Surprised I didn't sleep my normal 12 hours lol
