When will the next version of Windows be released?

Just curious and what everyone's thoughts are on the matter.


Ballmer earlier this year said "no more long cycles between releases" yet
some guy inside MS was quoted as saying "3 years".

My bets are on Q4 2010, just in time for Christmas, no batter what Ballmer
says.

It would be nice if they just went back to numbers, like version 7. Simple,
to the point.

Probably just in time for the machines to become self-aware.

& then crash. Would that be considered computer suicide?

Nope. That's when people will actually install it in production.

It would at least be considered "irony".

I got sent a roadmap booklet a couple of months ago from MS. They
mention Windows Client OS '7' coming out in 2010...

Interesting wee booklet too...I like this:

"Windows Cista has a new user interface, that will cause organiszations
some minor problems as users struggle to find how to perform tasks on
Vista that they knew how to perform on Windows XP; but this
inconvenience may be offset by the improved built in desktop search
capabilities."

That *will* cause minor problems.
this inconvenience *may* be offset

I guess the writer of that paragraph isn't sold on Vista 🙂

That would have been a different ending for the Terminator movies.
Probably not as exciting to see Arnold get the blue screen of death.

For a minute there I thought you were suggesting the next version of
Windows in 2010 is Windows Cista. I was thinking the following version
would be Windows Brutha.

LOL! You'll need to get the "Straight Outta Compton" CD from NWA to find
those other names. LOL.

By then Windows 9 will require 4GB of RAM just to boot!
