Windows 8 coming in July 2011


Seven, Eight... takes a lot of PR and dev efforts to wipe off the Vista shame.

I would love to know what is in Win8, and how it will inch us closer to the MS Cloud.

I'm on vista 64 bit currently. I was going to upgrade to 7 but I'll just wait for 8 now.

This isn't confirmed. It won't be next year considering 7 came out last year.

I think if Microsoft keep Window's current price plan, don't release 8 for another 4 or so years yet. While if it is going to turn out this way make it cheaper. Because this is just ridiculous. Businesses can't afford to continuously upgrade like this, and home users just won't care, leaving them more exposed to security risks in the future.

That's what i was thinking. I did not want to dish out $100 bucks if 8 is so close.

Sure 7 gives a few more fps in games and starts up faster but I cant bring my self to spend $100 on it. I'll just buy a new laptop in 2 years with it installed.
