Windows According to job postings discovered by Microsoft-centric blog UX Evangelist, Microsoft is already thinking Windows 8. The good news? Most of the jobs are technical roadmap and planning jobs, which suggests that Redmond is starting their thinking well ahead of time. We should be able to update you on how successful this job search turns out to be sometime in about 2012.

One more os from Windows!!!

Every 3-4 years new OS, new architecture, new way to deal the hardware... is it a design flaw that is not able to consider changes in hardware and future requirements? Why cant they push new updates, and upgrades just like Unix, Linux, BSD systems?

I see its all for money! Nothing more...

Are you envious? Oh, Linux's architecture is very ancient... it needs a revamp!

Funny comment you gave. Linux has it's architecture as it is because the architecture has been proven to be good for quite some time now.

Everybody can see Microsoft asymptotically merging towards the UNIX principles. Might still take some time until they finally go for the real thing, but until then they have to deal with the effects of their bad (but "modern") architecture.
