Not soon enough. Seriously I hate to say it but I'm bored with Windows 7. I love it to pieces but nothing new to do on it.

I like how Ubuntu is released, every 6 months. Though they do not change enough

They don't make enough money. Give them a couple hundred million and I bet you'd see complete rewrites every 6 months.

I dislike seeing people say 'its to soon' for a new version of Windows. Its like they are saying to stop innovation, or moving forward in technology.

Mmhmm.
Let us keep XP, as long as we can make enough money off of it.
If there was enough money, that would be awesome.

I agree. Technology is supposed to be evolving quickly. Instead many people still use XP even though Microsoft would like them to switch to W7 now.
It is a shame; I want to see some really new and radical changes to Windows.
