Let's get 7 out of the retail boxes first to see how things go for the retail release before MS eventually announces any public availability for testing...?
Who said the nest would actually be named "8" to start with? So far MS hasn't even announced the actual pricing for 7 quite yet. Anyone seen any code names for what is to follow 7 lately?
"stay tuned for scenes from what comes after 7!" I think once there's some confirmation from MS on just what the next version will be called someone will be busy getting the next forum going at that time!
In the meantime we''ll have to see that the Vista and seven forums are placed on the whitelist so they won't be mistaken for any of that.. that aweful stuff!
