Windows Amidst all the WikiLeaks hoopla, there's also actual regular news going on. Windows 7 is barely out the door, and we're already dealing with Windows 8, which is indeed being worked on but will not arrive for at least two years. There's some rumours from an Italian website which state that the 64bit version of Windows 8 will have a completely new interface called Wind. Right.

The sentiment is correct considering that XP is gonna be with us for at least another 10 years making the OS lifespan something like 20 years

Problem is old people and including old computer geeks get stuck in their ways and dont want to make the effort to learn any thing new and beneficial.
