    Windows 8 Might not be comercially released


    Hi all
    Shows some people are already getting nervous about this product (W8) - trying to kill it off before it even starts.

    From what I've seen so far W8 will be a Winner building on W7's success -- even if mainstream stays with W7.

    MS might just break into the android market too -- pity Google got there just a bit earlier as I like the W8 idea far better than the android apps system.

    im pretty sure it will be, i mean come on really MS not releasing it to the public, that would be like saying to the public "Were not making computer hardware anymore by [...](insert your favorite reputable hardware MFG here)" uhhh windows is Microsoft's "cash cow"

    Hi all
    I LIKE W8 and of course it will be released commercially.

    The point of the Post was to say even at this stage there are always people wanting to "Trash" a potential competitors product even before the formal specs have been released.

    The fact that this type of B/S is making the "Blogosphere" just proves IMO that W8 will be a very strong product and it will have even more success than W7.

    Hi, my name is Microsoft. I plan to spend over 10 Billion dollars creating a new OS. Wait for it... Wait for it... and not sell it. My share holders are going to want to give me more money after this move.

    What the F*&^ are they writing about? It sounds like a writer sleept in one day and forgot that he/she had to hand in a assignment that day and just came up with this in 15 min.

    So, because I developed a hugely successful platform that sells millions and millions of copies... don't worry, I'm not going to release another version. That would be stupid!
