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.

Member since:

May I suggest that Windows 8 will introduce ever tighter integration with Microsoft and its affiliate services while also introducing an App "store" a la Apple that is essentially a rip off of what Linux has had available for years in system wide updates and application management. Only Microsoft's App store will be hostile to F/OSS applications or indeed any application that dares to think different. Glad I ditched Windows years ago.

Except nobody cares about a Linux app store.
