Engineering Windows 8 blog..

Already two years ago I found something on the VMWare site about Windows 8, a year ago a placeholder on the blog from Engineering Windows 8 was set.

Today, after checking it again the name Steven Sinofsky was (still?) visible in the source code:

Sinofsky is currently managing the teams that are working on the successor to Windows 7, codenamed “Windows 8” or “Windows.Next”, as well as Internet Explorer 9, Windows Live Wave 4, and it’s future successor, Wave 5.

Should we expect some information soon as more and more information from builds leak? We’ll keep an eye on it 😉

Engineering Windows 8 blog soon?

Are we going to have some news about the Windows 8 development in the near future? Their blog is already taken and the title is TBD.

On 20/10/2009 I also found a Windows 8 indication on the VMWare site. Does this mean Windows 8 + more Virtualization?

Windows 8?

It looks like Microsoft is already developing their new OS, Windows 8. Windows 7 is not yet officially released and I already found something which could indicate that Microsoft is sharing information on Windows 8 with some companies.

I could be wrong but take a look at the screenshot that I took yesterday (19/10/2009):

Does VMWare know more about Windows 8?

Oh before I forget: Get yourself Windows 7, it’s so smooth!
