Windows Microsoft's CEO Steve Ballmer has officially confirmed today, during a developer conference in Tokyo, that the next version of Windows will be called Windows 8 and will debut in 2012. More details on Windows 8 could emerge at the upcoming D: All Things Digital conference, where Steven Sinofsky, president of the Windows division of Microsoft, is scheduled to "talk about the future of Windows in the era of all kinds of new devices and the cloud".

Yep, Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, Masturbating Monkey will already be released by the time Windows 8 will be on the shelves.

Hooray! We can all install Ubuntu to play Tetris, browse the web from time to time when the interface is up, congratulate each other on forums about the smart choice we made using FOSS, post insulting things about MS and Windows on Osnews, enjoy the total terminal sexiness and the overall FOSS goodness. ;)
