An anonymous employee of Microsoft Corp. said in a blog post the next version of Windows operating system, which is presently known as Windows 8, would change the way people think about personal computers. He did not reveal any actual details or reasons why Windows.next, as he called it, would be so revolutionary.
“The themes that have been floated truly reflect what people have been looking for years and it will change the way people think about PCs and the way they use them. It is the future of PCs,” an anonymous Microsoft blogger has written, reports Hexus.net web-site.
Even though Windows has come a long way since the revolutionary Windows 95 was released fifteen years ago, newly launched operating systems usually met, but did not exceed expectations, Windows consistently supported hardware and software innovations, but the interface and logic of the system remained virtually unchanged, which is pretty rational, on the other hand. Microsoft has been talking about substantial changes within Windows, e.g., file system, for many years now, however, it never implemented it. Now, Microsoft promises another revolution.
“The minimum that folks can take for granted is that the next version will be something completely different from what folks usually expect of Windows – I am simply impressed with the process that Steven has setup to listen to our customers needs and wants and get a team together than can make it happen. To actually bring together dozens and dozens of teams across Microsoft to come up with a vision for Windows.next is a process that is surreal,” claimed the blogger.
Microsoft Windows 8 is expected to be released in mid-2011.
Microsoft did not comment on the news-story.
