According to the industry media reports, Windows 8 might be foisted on us as soon as July 2011 and the next version of Server one year later: July 2012. To be honest, both dates - but especially Windows 8's - seem, well, too soon. I'm still waiting for the publishing of Russinovich's Windows Internals 6th ed. which is supposed to be covering Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2. When I do get it, it will take me to sometime in 2011 to get it read! Then it's an all new "mind blowing" (as Microsoft puts it) version that I have to learn about? Why bother, eh? It seems like too much too soon for me. I feel that way. I thought NT was a mature product and didn't need constant changing. I know Microsoft can't rest on its laurels, but then again can't they get all "excited" about some other product in their lineup for a while? Because if we start having heart attacks, Microsoft, new computers won't be the priority. Instead, let's hear it for building up a Windows 7 ecosystem.
