    It has taken much effort for Microsoft to get where it has with Windows 7-and to make us forget the bad experiences with Vista's launch. Heck, many businesses are just getting round to evaluating and adopting W7!

    Unless some really radical 'must have' product capability, say, with wide ranging cloud computing capabilities, is going to come out with Windows 8 I see no reason to look forward to it. MS are in danger of killing the golden goose by overpromotion on less than exciting software changes.

    I disagree.

    By the time the release candidates do their rounds and it eventually goes gold, it'll be late 2012. Thats 3 years after the release of Windows 7.

    3 years is more than long enough life-cycle for an operating system build. Companies that aren't ready to upgrade simply won't upgrade - as was the case with Windows 7. Nobody is twisting any arms!

    Indeed!

    The main thing about windows 8 thou is surely its ability to run on ARM chips.

    I really hope this will see the Revo PC et al taken to the next state, completely passive, solid state boxes for £100-150.

    Turns out the build is fake, anyway.

    It's actually 6.1.7600. 16385(win7_rtm.090713-1255)

    Might want to check your facts with that.

    It is a 6 month old M1 build though so not really worth trying.
