    Actually, Windows 8 in 2012 and Office 15 in 2014 Make Sense


    Actually, launch deadlines for the next iteration of Windows in 2012, and for the forthcoming major version of Office in 2014, make sense.

    With the advent of Windows Vista, various Microsoft executives, including CEO Steve Ballmer promised to never again repeat the gap that separated Windows XP from its successor, and to deliver new Windows releases at a faster pace, once every three years or so.

    And while the Redmond company has yet to confirm any details related to Windows 8, the successor of Windows 7, third-party sources are reporting that the operating system will be released by the end of 2012.

    Itís all a matter of simple math actually. Windows 7 was released to manufacturing on July 22nd, 2009, less than three years after the RTM of Windows Vista.

    Some might still remember that Microsoft released Vista to manufacturing on November 8th, 2006, and in this context, Windows 7 was wrapped up a good three months ahead of the three years that the software giant announced it would take it to build the next iteration of Windows.
