Windows 8 improvements and innovative features designed to reinvent the file access wheel for branch offices are planned to debut soon, according to Microsoft. Planning for Windows 8, the successor of Windows 7, is already well under way, but thereâ??s no way to tell yet if Microsoft will start the actual work on the DFSR (Distributed File System Replication ) file replication engine in Windows 8, or if the features will debut into the planning stage.

They have a stellar product in Windows 7, so I don't doubt for a second Windows 8 can be equal to or even better than 7.

    I've modified nearly everything in this machine...what I HAVEN'T changed is the DVD drive, case, and motherboard. I think I added just about everything else I use.

I hope it doesn't get bloated. With Windows 7 they removed most of the bloat added in Vista and left over from XP but the more features are requested the easier it is to lose sight of that. I don't think they will though, their server products continue to get lighter.

Well I'm giving MS the BOTD and hoping for the best until I can start judging one way or another once the first leaks hit.

I wish I shared your confidence... one only has to consider the XP to Vista situation to realize that they don't always progress in their development paths. :p
And let's not forget Windows ME. ...on second thought, maybe we should.
