Windows 8 Clues Emerge

Microsoft is a better master of the press leak than Deep Throat. A smidge of information turns into a bushel of articles -- such as this one. All Microsoft has to do is post a few jobs and do a quick interview, and suddenly we're all excited about Windows 8. (Hey, I'm happy just to have 7.)

Microsoft watcher extraordinaire Mary Jo Foley is once again in the forefront with this Windows 8 news. According to this longtime Redmond magazine columnist, Windows 8 will have a more secure kernel and vastly improved management hooks.

And for someone who still finds that Windows 7 hangs instead of hibernates, news that Microsoft is working on better sleep and hibernation features is welcome indeed.
