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.

New releases of Windows always drive an upgrade cycle.

Windows 7 maybe not so much because Windows 7 is really a premium Vista service pack.

Most corps have skipped Windows Vista and are going to move from XP to 7.

Secondly Windows 7 is not a Vista with a service pack slapped on.

Considering Microsoft actually removed features and gave the UI the biggest overhaul since Windows XP, I think that is a pretty significant change.

Compared to Win7 Vista feels like a beta. It just isn't finished. I never had that feeling with win95-98. But I had the same feeling with Winxp and Winxp sp2. Compared to sp2 winxp feels like a beta.
