the way i see it is that windows 8 will be a huge consumer success but it may falter in the business and psycho nerd groups. im looking forward to it, im sure il get to to work for me as opposed to me fighting with it. its just sad to see a new group of die hards is being born. we got the xp purists and now the win 7 diehards, cant wait for that group of flame wars to begin once 8 gets closer.

Looks like the beginning of the end!

 

From all the negative press I doubt this will be released as Windows 8. Microsoft will have to learn that most people are not the "apple sheep". This will be a tablet OS in the end. I don't know what they are thinking???

If this happens I won't be switching from Windows 7 any time soon.

I like love the design of Windows 8. I would not call it "iPadifying" or anything like that. Windows 8 looks attractive. It does not look the same as all of their other OSs, which is a good thing. Windows 8 is definitely a new beginning. A revolution from the ordinary, into something completely extrodinary!

If all of this information turns out to be true, i personally see windows 8 being in the same boat as Vista. That being that most people will stick with 7, just like many stuck with XP instead of making the switch to the new technology.

More like a lesser begining...

One kernel to rule them all!

No, MSFT should really differentiate its mobile and desktop offerings.  I'm not sure why they're keeping the same OS for all platforms.  Are they unable to write a mobile code-base out of Windows?  We'll see how it performs!

While I understand the need for a Windows based tablet, I think MS should really think about keeping the mobile and the desktop separate.

Will Microsoft be moving fully to 64bit?

Probably not; build 7955 was 32bit. Server, however, will definitely be 64bit only as that was the case with Windows 7.

If Microsoft does this to Win8 it will mean a very long life for Win7.
