Wow, I wouldn't have thought that it would be that soon. I do not see how or why it would be that early for a RTM though.

If it's going to be "in the cloud" then I can't see it coming out in the next couple of years. They'll want to have it all tested as thoroughly as possible before release I would expect/hope, especially the security side of things. Might be more betas to test that way as well

I was thinking around late 2012 or early 2013!! :eek:

My thoughts exactly Ryan, I only started using Windows 7 on launch day, can't count the beta I had a go at as I didn't keep it long enough to really know what it was all about. Still got an XP machine here that's in daily use and will be until such time as we can afford a new machine and that will be a few years yet as I've only had this one for just under 2 years.

I never rush to conclusions here! Even with 7 I waited to get more MS information through their own blogs rather then hearsay when someone simply wants to fill a web page.

You most likely would see initial reports on what the early Alpha and other stages look like with supposed leaked info of 8's wallpapers or whatever similar to what was seen for 7. With 7 however the information about MS wanting to get back onto their old 2-3yr. time table would suggest possible beta testing in early to mid 2012 not 2011.

This is wayyyyy sooner then i expected. But i doubt this is the true dates (maybe this is the beta release dates) because after the success of windows 7, Microsoft will try to milk all the money out of that product. I think windows 8 will reach RTM in 2013 or 2014.
