Win 8 and Win 7 SP1 Preparations. etc.

Windows 8 and Windows 7 SP1 Preparations alongside Windows 7 Development.

Quote:
Microsoft started preparing for the next releases of the Windows client as the latest iteration of the operating system was still in development. The Redmond-based company already debuted work to ensure the servicing readiness for Windows 7 Service Pack 1 and started planning for Windows 8, the successor of Windows 7. The information comes from the profile of Ahmed Badruddin, a Microsoft Software Design Engineer in Test II since September 2008 until present day. Badruddin was one of the people that labored to define and execute the testing strategy associated with improving Windows 7 Service Pack experience quality. (via MSFTKitchen)

Yeah, I had heard this before, but it was all speculation at the time. Doesn't surprise me at all though that Microsoft was already thinking ahead.

Congratulations Marius. Feel free to pat yourself on the back

Nothing Wow about it actually, its not like they are going to just drop everything, take 2 years off and then go back to work for windows 8.

I'm just shocked that's all, I mean, when they were still making Vista it was like they were preparing a windows that would last forever but then they made 7 a couple of years later which was much better than the broken Vista AND was a great success as well. 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...

They have already started on Windows 9 as well. This is old news. They always work at least two versions ahead.
