    Windows 8

    I've heard that's just the beginning of what's coming,
    At this point of course this is all just rumour.

    Beauty is skin deep

    This is just Microsoft putting more lipstick on their pig.

    2012 is Code for 2015

    It'll take that long to cook up a new RAM and processor hogging skin for the current version of XP-Vista-7... forcing all users to upgrade their computers in order to run the beast.

    Let's hope Microsoft also continues their forward-thinking approach by supporting the latest technologies such as dot-matrix printers, parallel and serial ports!
    1985 never looked so good!

    Hahaha, all the jokes. Oh so funny.


    Whatever the case, Windows 8 will be part of the 93% club.

    Right Mac Sixers?

    Maybe MSFT should relocate to Chicago

    Wasn't Windows 4/Windows 95 called Chicago/Cougar?

    MS hopes...

    Probably they release it in 2012 or later because they hope that by the time 16 Gigs of RAM will be standard.

    Love being the top sixers ... and will continue to laugh at you and the rest of your ilk in the bottom 93. But keep trying to polish your Microsoft TTUURRDDS! After all, that's how you and the bottom 93 got to be where you are.

    Oh my

    "The UI would be entirely adaptive and change icons, shortcuts and possibly other elements to streamline day-to-day use"

    Who decides how to streamline the system? Clippy the Windows Assistant? I don't want my Computer trying optimise my work. I want it to do the work I'm telling it to do. Every day, 20h a day if it has to. Without fail, without hiccups, without "Cleaning my desktop of unused items", without reminding me that I have unplugged the Ethernet cable, without telling me that my "System might be in danger". I want it to just work (tm). I'll stick with my Mac, thank you very much.
