Windows 8 is coming in 2012
 
According to the latest roadmap from Microsoft, it would appear that Windows 8 will arrive sometime in 2012. This would follow a three year product cycle that would keep it in line with Vista and Windows 7 releases.

The road map is clear about the targeted date and does not try to hide the fact that the code name is "Windows 8". Little else is known about the OS other than its targeted date of release.

It's not a client OS road-map, but interesting that they speak about Windows 8 specifically :)

Windows 8 is a major update so Windows 7 is a minor update of Vista?

I like how they just left Vista off the map. :lol:

Was there a server flavor with the name vista on it?

Definitely. Technically speaking, Seven is Vista, of course updated, with a few pieces optimized (thanks for instance to not needing anymore a stellar support of AGP cards), and with some changes in that thin layer that's visible: the user interface.

My experience with it is that it works without trouble, even on my EeePC. Like my Vista did...

There isn't a server with the name Windows 7 on it as far as I know but it is on the map.

Yeah I was thinking they put 7 on there though because its release was at the same time as 2008R2 isn't it? Or do I have that wrong? I don't think vista had a similar release schedule with any server edition.

More or less 2008 = vista, 2008 r2 = 7? But vista was much earlier than 2008 and later than 2003 r2.

Windows 7 is essentially Windows Enterprise. Still, not a server based implementation so not sure why the Windows 7 name is in there. Win2k8 R2 would have sufficed.

Looks like MS is back to their 3 year cycle.

So Windows 8 will actually be Windows 7.0 right? Or will it be 6.2? This numbering scheme is horrible :lol:

I think the internal build may stretch to 7.0 in a few more years, not sure if it will by 2011 :)

But then again, who knows, besides the Microsoft team working on this :rofl

Read on ars about some very cool progress they are making with win min, and we might see a core server from it very soon.
