Microsoft's next version of the Windows operating system, dubbed Windows 8, will debut in 2012, company CEO Steve Ballmer said Monday.

Ballmer made the announcement in Tokyo, speaking to an audience of software developers. Observers had been expecting the next version of Windows next year, but this is the first time that the company has officially confirmed the 2012 date. Ballmer told the developers, "as we look forward to the next generation of Windows systems, which will come out next year, there's a whole lot more coming," according to a transcript of his speech posted to Microsoft's website.

*facepalm* I just bought Win 7 lol I'm sticking with it for awhile.. but I have seen the trend!

Win 3.5 - Had to have it
Win 95 - Major Upgrade, had to have it
Win 98 - okay, New puter, new OS
Win 2000 - didn't they just upgrade a few years ago? 98 still works for me
Win ME - No thank you
Win XP - Okay.. more than a few years has passed.. I could use it! Oh wow.. I love it!
Win Vista - umm.. NO!
Win 7 - but but but.. I love my XP! NOOOOO.. *wait another year for them to work out the bugs* Fine! but this is the LAST one!
Win 8 - Huh? didn't ya'll JUST get settled? gonna wait to see how many bugs this one has first!

It sounds awful from what I have read about is so far.
The you-tube doesn't look encouraging either.  Roll Eyes

I am sticking to 7 as well.  Afro
We bought a new desktop last night, it was a good deal because of the tax free weekend (on school supplies). Win 7... you bet.  Grin

I was SO reluctant to get Win 7 at first, only cause of my mastery of Win XP and I honestly thought it was another "phase" but then I heard they were going to no longer do the updates for XP next year? and for the fact that I needed more ram to play SWTOR more efficiently so went ahead and invested.. I love it.. but it's something I'll stick with until they no longer put out updates for.. my gameplay is forever changing lol so will always need to improve lol I am such a geek

They stop making updates, so we will all run out and buy new OS`s or computers.  They know how to rake in the money.
I read somewhere that they will be updating 7 for a long time, hope its true. I need to see if I can find that article.
