Windows Ever since the successful development and launch of Windows 7, Microsoft has become ever tighter-lipped about Windows development. Sure, it dropped the bomb about releasing Windows 8 for ARM, but that's it. Nothing on features or timetables (other than 'three years after Windows 7'). Well, the usually well-connected (inside Microsoft, that is) Mary-Jo Foley now claims to have a legit development roadmap - and it seems everything is on track for a Windows 8 beta in September 2011.

Will MS try to dictate the HW configs like they did with Netbooks?


Hardware makers were free to ignore the Windows-specified limits and make Linux netbooks. In fact, they did - massively. It's just that no one bought them.

Go play somewhere else, troll.
