Windows 8 Development Process Still in the Early Stages

Quote:
Microsoft makes it a point of not sharing all of interim Builds of next generation product available to all testers, and this is also the case for Windows 8, the successor of Windows 7.

But although there isnít much information available on Windows vNext, the company is hard at work building the operating system, and also dogfooding it.

Dogfooding is a term synonymous with internal testing, and Microsoft traditionally has its employees running next version of its products, Windows included, even at the very early stages of the development process. Think pre-Alpha and Alpha.

Or in the case of Windows 8, Milestone releases, just as for Windows 7. Third-party reports indicate that Windows 8 has reached Milestone 2, and that itís on its way to M3.

Is this still going to be cloud based

As long as the Cloud remains an optional part, like MS Office which is decidedly quite popular and the majority of Windows users have it or access to it - to the point where many casual users assume it is part of the OS and have come to expect to see it on any Windows computer - but we know you can definitely use your computer without it, that's fine with me.

Too early for speculation though imho.

If this is going to be solely cloud based MS will be losing far too much money.

If or when Microsoft goes to the cloud I will:
A) Keep the non-cloud based OS I already have.
B) go to Linux/Ubuntu

Milestone 2 development is still in progress at the moment, but Microsoft should be working their way towards Milestone 3 stages fairly soon.
