Microsoft Already Starting Work on Windows 8

"For the upcoming version of Windows, new critical features are being worked on including cluster support and support for one way replication," Microsoft wrote in a job posting on its site. "The core engine is also being reworked to provide dramatic performance improvements. We will also soon be starting major improvements for Windows 8 where we will be including innovative features which will revolutionize file access in branch offices."
