Michael Cherry, a former influential Microsoft employee, is now one of the most influential Microsoft analysts. So when Cherry predicts that Windows 8 will probably ship in two years, I tend to believe him.
Cherry and independent analyst group Directions on Microsoft, argue that some software houses and OEMs already have an early build -- I'd guess a way early build -- of Win 8.
I'm actually a bit surprised that no real features or a sense of what this OS is about have leaked out. That all may change this September if Microsoft gives out Win 8 code at its Professional Developers Conference.
Like Win 7, Win 8 is expected to run on 32- and 64-bit chips, but will also run on ARM's system-on-chip. My guess is the ARM version will come after the Intel/AMD compatible revs.
What does Microsoft have to do to generate excitement two years from now with Win 8? You tell me at [email protected]
