I'm still using Windows XP with all the themes turned off, can't stand this new posh look, and XP does what I want. I don't see a point in upgrading to Windows 7 so why would I be interested in Windows 8? :p

A new release next year seems a bit abhorent to me, I cant fathom what they are going to include in 8 to warrant consumers upgrading again so soon but I guess therein lies the fun. Finding out what features it will be packing

you do realize every company in the tech department bases their product life cycle on a 2 year system, right?

While I used to think a new OS was great every 2 years, Windows 7 is pretty darn good right now. Windows 8 will probably be a great OS however most people especially novice users will take about a year just to switch or get used to Windows 7. Introducing a new OS with a different look and features will only confuse people more.

I think in the olden days technology was progressing so quick that a new OS was needed quickly however I would like to hold on to Windows 7 and just have Microsoft build or improve on it like Apple does with OS X.

Meh. Windows 7 is good enough, as long as I can log onto Facebook (play Farmville) and watch video, listen to my music. Why upgrade?

Probably will wait for Windows 9 before I upgrade, or see how Google's Linux system turns out.

What Google Linux OS are you talking about?

Apparently, Google is bringing out some sort of portable computer with a customer Google system.

As long as it does Flash, opens DVD / Blu-ray and DivX - I won't really need Windows in the future. I think...

ChromeOS - basically it is a Linux core with a web browser running ontop; no different than the snapdragon powered netbook by Lenovo to be released sometime this year. I question how well it'll operate considering how expensive mobile broadband is.

I can't wait to see what Windows 8 is like. MS said it will be a good change between 7 to 8. So can't wait! Hope it is a little similar in design to the Copenhagen Project thing. I loved that design. Wish it was the real OS! That would be the best OS yet if it were real as of now.

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

It's one of these!

Sh*t, I just purchased a copy of Win7 Pro... any news on what to expect with Windows 8? More importantly, will Windows 8 be it's name? I'm sort of getting tired of the numbers... Windows 7 is an inept name for an OS especially one of Windows 7's caliber in comparison to its predecessor (Vista).

Tired of numbers? 2000 was the last time a consumer OS used numbers, the last time they used a version number was 3.1 (3.11 and NT4 were network operating systems).

I think the numbers do the product more justice, it's succinct, easy to remember. Can't name it Win2012 because server's use those. Win8 just makes more sense. To me anyway.

Cool. I'm using XP right now because 7 didn't offer me enough reason to upgrade. Windows 8 will probably cater for people like me who had nothing against 7 but do really need to upgrade in the future.

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

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.
