Windows Seven Ultimate

Apparantly (not definite) Microsoft is planning Windows 8 with nothing to base it on. Not just an update, a whole new OS, a bit like comparing Windows Explorer to Internet Explorer, both completely different, but has the same function: Browse through items. Therefore, I think that Windows 7 will be Windows Explorer, and Windows 8 will be Internet Explorer. Completely different (GUI, Ease of use) but has the same functions (To use the computer).

Just what I heard and now my point of view,

Why would they rush into a new windows right now while 7 is already kicking @$$ all over the world!!

Microsoft shouldn't be even worried about Chrome and Apple IMO...
Vista is comparable to Windows ME, As XP is comparable to Windows7

Calling it that is pure rubbish...Why don't we just call XP Windows Pretty 2000? Because it isn't and the same goes for 7
I agree

Windows 7 RTM x64

Asides from some roadmaps and Microsoft job listings unveiled by Stephen Chapman over at msftkitchen, nothing much is known about Windows 8 at this point in time. In our quest to see what’s going on over at Redmond, we got our hands on this list of builds from a very credible source within Microsoft (though it isn’t official, and it should be taken with a grain of salt):
7650.0.090917-1843 17.09.2009 18:43
7651.0.090924-1802 24.09.2009 18:02
7656.0.091015-0833 15.10.2009 08:33
7658.0.091019-1850 19.10.2009 18:50
7659.0.091020-1830 20.10.2009 18:30
7660.0.091021-1736 21.10.2009 17:36

Windows 7 Professional

Forget Windows 8, Windows 7 SP1 has not even been released yet...Microsoft needs to fix up all the little bugs and annoyances related to W7 RTM first before consumers start switching to Windows 7 and current W7 users start looking for info on Windows 8.

There are a few annoyances with Windows 7 I just can keep on the down-low. The biggest annoyances being Administrative Privileges for files and folders and NTUSER.DAT files showing up in My Folders (but this could be a PerfectDisk bug).

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit

Seems to me that we have already seen a service pack build that was slicker and faster than the current build we're all using.

There were great all night leaked build frenzies occurring on this forum last Summer and I don't know whether it's just that I'm now taking W7 for granted but I'm sure some of those builds were better than the RTM.

I can't recall the numbers but I think build 7127 or 137 was very good and there was a leaked build from a Chinese site which had no installer but was part of the service pack series.
One of our esteemed members grafted on the front end of another build and it ran like an express train.

That would indicate that the service packs development coincided with the final touches being put on the RTM.

So I suppose MS could release an SP1 whenever they wish.

Windows 8 has been in planning since 7was in development...this is no shock as each company that produces products that improve on other products have future revisions in work with up coming revisions...

If they just started planning Win8 right now...that would be a true shock
