Windows 8 starts to come into focus

Here we go its at the planning stage ;)

I get questions periodically about whether Windows 7 marks the end of the Microsoft operating system road.

Some users wonder whether will Microsoftâ??s next version of Windows be completely cloud-based? Will it be Midori with the Windows name slapped on it?

No and no. The bottom line: Windows isnâ??t done when Windows 7 is released to manufacturing (most likely in late fall 2009). Windows 8 has been on the drawing board/planning stages for a while now. And as the â??Codename Windowsâ? blog recently reported, Microsoft is starting to hire developers specifically for Windows 8.

Good OS...

Windows 7 is by far the best OS out of Redmond, therefore M$ is not in such a hurry to release another OS for a while...

I won't start looking for betas or leaks of Windows 8 for quite a while, remember we still have a couple of Service Packs for Windows 7 to wait out prior to a new OS...

Just my opinion, and we all know that opinions are like a---oles, we all have and they are all different!
