What's new

Windows 8 2012.

With Windows 7 and Windows Server R2 release Client and Server are in sync again, this was the case back in NT 3.1 in 1994, NT 3.51 in 1995, NT4 in 1996 and Windows 2000 in 2000. With Codename Whistler Windows XP (NT5.1) and .NET server (later named 2003, NT5.2) release went out of sync. Windows Vista (NT6.0) and Windows Server 2008 (NT6.0) the kernel got back in sync (not the release).

Windows 7 which is actually NT 6.1, so codename Windows 8 is NT 7 :).

Here's a new comment from Stephen Chapman.

I doubt we'll see the beta until early/mid 2011, to be honest. From everything I've seen about Windows 8 so far, it appears to be a fairly large undertaking. I wouldn't get my hopes up if I were you, but you never know what can happen! Either way, I'm sure the leaks will come long before the beta.

From his blog.

naturally MS stated long ago they will begin releasing new versions of the OS every 2-3 years. the life span xp had continues to cause problems for MS and an OS at that age can be a nightmare to keep up to date and secure.

SP1 beta for Windows 7 is coming soon.
What I read led me to believe MS was testing the service pack integration process way in advance of any possible service packs. The service pack was a test of the process, much like features of this site are being tested before being rolled out.

I skipped Vista, but research has revealed that after Vista SP1, SP2 is not capable of being "slipstreamed" into an install DVD. This is a real pain (just add more to the Vista experience) because it means every time Vista is reinstalled or repaired the SP2 will also have to be installed. I have been "slipstreaming" service packs into install disks since 2000. I am dumbfounded by this move. Hopefully, the early testing of this feature in 7 will bring back slipstreaming?

Cheers!
Robert
