I think they've already began working on it. Also, I don't work at Microsoft obviously, although I believe they have separate teams for Service Packs and Operating Systems.

I agree. Personally I'd rather see Windows 8 pushing 64-bit.

I've heard there is a 128-bit of it and distributed as trial version of Win 8, but I think it's too early to start publishing for Win 8, they need more than to 2011 or 2012 for move like that.
People just started to get along with win 7.

Some of us have been playing with 7 bits for over a year now. We're ready when they are. Wouldn't suprise me if they have created some bits by now, but nothing to distribute very widely.

I still can't believe you admins have already made windows 8 forums...
But I do agree, they will be focusing on SPs for the time being.

Also think about when the first 64-bit machines came out. Although I doubt they will optimize it for 128, it is most definitely a theory.

I hope the stay away from the cloud, as for Linux I know how to spell it, other then that I want nothing to do with it. As for my dislike for cloud well the security and trust factors involved are just beyond what I want of my personal files and artwork.

I can say that I like the 64 bit or beyond though, since getting this laptop and 64bit 7 I have liked it a lot. Didn't think I would find the software but seems most things I use can be found free these days with 64 bit version avail.

Now what I mean by customizable, for example a gamers windows I could see graphic options avail to set options quickly in a sidebar gadget, no fancy graphic for the desktop on, etc. I have seen GUI apps for windows that change the feel etc. Think there's a group here making a custom UI with the core of another app already avail. I could imagine an option when windows starts and you could set the mode for windows, and with options for gaming, movie watching, business apps, graphic design. Basically it would be a theme on steroids or you could just boot into full windows. Laptops could benefit from this as they could disable and power down parts they don't need.

I like the copy/move to folder option but don't like how I need 3rd party software to enable it with right click. I also liked XP's ability to customize the tool bar, I would add delete and other options to reduce the amount of mouse clicks I used. I could edit files/reg to get these options but they should be avail by default IMHO.

Hi there
A lot of the problems with "The Cloud" are really based on Misconception.

Of course people will want to SECURE their own data locally and the cloud won't prevent that - You'll always have LOCAL storage available. Look at the total abject failure of "Diskless Workstations" that were all the rage a few years ago.

Quite frankly if I'm using say Office or other "Standard" applications I really couldn't care if the Server is on Planet Mars or my local PC so long as it works when I switch the computer on and has the Interface I'm used to.

For a lot of Work applications this will be a GODSEND as you should be able to access these applications from ANYWHERE (assuming authorized).

Some local apps won't disappear of course but the number of these will be really minimized in the future.

The main drawback to "The Cloud" will be if "Corporate Greed" gets in the way -- excessive and exhorbitant fees will kill the concept STONE DEAD.

A better way of "charging" for us as consumers would be to have this all included with your Internet Package.

I really don't have any problems with using applications from "The Cloud" if suitable -- however the interface must be based on existing apps -- I don't like Windows LIVE at all so if it goes in that direction then game over.

Cheers

Hi there
another complaint people have against "The Cloud" is that the Internet might not be on when you want it.

I think in the future it's not very likely -- for example in most large cities in Europe / Austrailia, US etc how often do you find that your Mobile Phone doesn't work -- probably never.

The Internet will become as ubquitious as the mobile phone network.

I would much rather not have to keep installing applications and updates if I don't have to.

I would much rather spend my time on say developing new applications or just USING stuff that's already out there.

Just also think of the EASE of testing new apps or versions -- just logon to the appropriate server and away you go.

OK there will be some security considerations - but note if you are running on "The Cloud" then the Virus won't be on YOUR machine in any case.

I can see my local PC just being used as a multi-media streaming centre, a local data storage repository and a printing facility.

No problems with that if the problems can be sorted out.
Would sure make life a lot easier too.

(However it would also make this excellent Forum redundant -- that's the only Downside of the Cloud as far as I can see).
