Making something perform better on crapware, as well as adding new features is rather difficult. While it would be nice if they could just snap their fingers and make a new OS thats flawless, it just can't happen like that.
Personally they should just start from scratch, New Kernel, Filesystem, GUI, etc. Even if it takes like 4-5 years.
And then we will have a forum full of whiners because their win7, vista and xp drivers and apps don't work on win8.
Well they'll have to get over it now wont they? Its been a while and I think they need a complete overhaul (W7 is nice but could have been better) and need to just start from scratch.
windows might take a little bit longer to release than windows 7 did
I agree with you dannyp32. It will take longer to hit stores than 7 did, But I believe it will leak early. Ms must be aware of the enormous base of testers anxious to get a shot at critiquing and reporting their newest bits via the net.Hence my prediction Oct 2010. Win 8 leaked to the wide world of non official beta testers. Free testing for MS in the real world on old hardware and new hardware and anything in-between. With hardware technology moving forward as it is then software must move forward also. Software must be used,give us some.
