IMO, MS should put out a new OS every 5 years making certain that it's flawless before being released. In the interim, do SP's to improve on what they previously released. I'm not shelling out every 2-3 yrs for a new OS that has bugs. Well I've gotten My last two OS free...LOL. I did pay for an anytime upgrade on my laptop :pinch:

Flawless is impossible, there will always be problems like security holes that will be found later.

I think if anything 4 year cycle would be sufficient for home/general consumer OS. They need to branch off another desktop OS for business's with longer cycle outside server.

But what you guys are forgetting is that everyone's upgrade schedule is different. By releasing new products sooner you can choose when to jump in instead of being effectively forced to upgrade because it's a revolutionary release and not an evolutionary one.

This is not to fast. This is right on track with Microsoft's goals. They want windows to become a subscription service just like anti virus programs. This is the start they want to do a 2 year roll out between OS's and then eventually a pay service. This has been discussed on this site before. This short time frame is not a big surprise.


w00t to hacked software then.

I disagree. I'm all for evolution in less major releases than full on revolutions like Vista. But I do appreciate that you know the difference between 'to' and 'too'.



oh god, why do most of you have to play grammar police on here? i also agree it is too early for windows 8.

I certainly wont be upgrading... again... I'm still getting used to Windows 7 as it is... Running Vista on another PC still :)



yeah i won't either at least for a few years yet. we still need 7 sp1 & sp2.

i hope the rumour is true

that way the OS can keep up with the technology

i would expect Windows to take more advantge of multicore

since by the time Quad-core would be common , Hexa-core is comming soon this year

i would like to see what they can add to the OS , but there is not much they can do to it. less resources , faster boot ect, update the old features. that's all i can think of
