They have to keep their hordes of staff busy somehow. And in 2012, they want to make money too.

I would be funny (to me at least)...if Ballmer got on stage and right at the moment he says Windows 8 is finished...the world ends...

I don't want Windows 8 until I verify it's not another Vista.

it will be completly different from vista and 7 i think. 7 only had minor visual upgrades from vista, it mainly focused on the perfomace because loads of people hated vista so they bought out win7. But i think win 8 will take windows to a whole new level, i can't imagine what it will look like, also what kind of machines and componets will be out by then.
