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.

They frighten of something? They stopped development of IE when they thought the competition was over. Maybe they slowed Windows development for the same reason, and now the competition is looking a bit like it might also pull a FireFox on them.

There must be some OS that scares them and judging from all the ARM noise, it must be one that runs quite happy on ARM. As we know, now cost/the-planet/batteries are important, every want ARM.
