The Windows 8 Start - Post-RTM Windows 7 Build 6.1.7700

Following the leaked details related to Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 Build 6.1.7700.0.100122-1900, one question still remains unanswered. Is Build 6.1.7700.0.100122-1900 the first step to Windows 8 and Windows 8 Server, or just part of the development process on the way to Windows 7 Service Pack 1 and Windows Server 2008 SP1. There’s no way of answering this, at least not for the time being, and not with Microsoft keeping mum on the evolution of the Windows client and server. But one thing is certain: Windows 7 Build 6.1.7700.0.100122-1900 is real and a proof that Microsoft is already hard at work on the evolution of Windows.

Who needs Windows 8? Windows 7 just came out, and 3 years is too short of a time to be releasing a new OS.

Honestly - All im looking forward to in Windows 8 is the "new, futuristic OS." Thats it! :S I don't think it will have many problems, as they are working off-of windows 7.

I think they need to make some major upgrades to the UI, there are to many settings that need extra software to turn off and on, customization should be the next big thing. I say this because if you look at cell phones or just walk around target and see how everything has a customized look to it, isn't it about time to release a windows version that is easy (and built in) to customize. Shoot they could even sell UI's for business, hospitals, schools, gamers, programmers well you get the idea.

Hi there
A "Customized" UI already exists -- I think it's called LINUX.

I LIKE Windows because it's WINDOWS and I know how it behaves on almost any computer I run it on -- Customisation of the desktop with regard to pictures, applications, fonts and colors is already OK IMO.

While Linux servers are fine - each installation is different and you usually have to go through all sorts of hoops and rings to get stuff to work.

A business environment needs a reasonably standardized OS which Windows supplies. Imagine having to maintain 1000's of different versions of Linux etc. A small office without an IT dept probably would have trouble maintaining even as few as 5 different versions of Linux.

I'm not anti the Penguin by any manner of means - but I think reasonable standardisation of the OS is actually one of the great strengths of Windows.

The next incarnation of the OS will probably be a very small Windows kernel which will load and run applications from "The Cloud" and be essentially Browser based.

I suspect the new build is probably making progress towards this end.

If you like the Command Line interface then unless you switch to Linux the writing is actually on the wall.

The crazy thing about "Cloud" computing is that you won't really need powerful hardware anymore since the cloud apps will run on backend remote servers.

All you'll need will be a decent Graphics display and a fast Internet connection. A Netbook Atom processor plus some decent graphics capability for driving LARGE High Definition (and possibly 3-D) monitors might be all that's needed in future.

This will be strange - I'm not sure how the hardware vendors will adapt their business models but the NEXT generation of computers could be significantly less powerful than today's and we wouldn't actually suffer any loss in usefulness either.

Cheers

I don't think Microsoft will immediately start Windows 8. They will atleast market Windows 7 for an year and then start focusing on their next product. Further, Windows 7 is a successful OS after XP and hence, they will be concentrating on the Service Packs !

Somehow I doubt Windows 8 will be geared towards cloud computing. It may work it in there in a small way, but based on it, I don't think so.
