Microsoft is hiring developers to work on the successor to Windows 7, which many guess might ship in late 2009 or early 2010. Some folks have talked about the possibility of Windows 7 being the last Windows that’s a piece of software rather than a service. There is no doubt that Microsoft will be shipping new versions of Windows for years to come–even if the world moves sharply to the Web and old-fashioned operating systems look…well, really old fashioned. But I see at least five routes that Microsoft could take with Windows 8, or whatever it’ll end up being called: rumoured to be Midori...

Tuesday, 21 April 2009 18:26

Sure enough, the next iteration of Windows is at center stage, but this does not mean that it is getting Microsoft’s undivided attention. In fact, Windows 8 is growing in the shadow of Windows 7, as the Redmond company has made sure to confirm. The past week, the software giant indicated that it was ready to kick off major improvements designed to revolutionize file access in branch offices for Windows 8. But at the same time, this is not the only aspect of Windows 8 under focus. Microsoft also offered official confirmation that it was planning the next generation of the file server for Windows 8, the successor of Windows 7. "In Windows Server 2008 R2 release, the Server UX Test team (under the File Server Management organization) is finalizing the MMC based User eXperience (UX)/Interfaces for the File Server Role. Currently the team owns DFS Management, Share and Storage Management, FSRM & Classification UI, Disk Management, SMFS. For Windows 8, the SSD organization is working on the next version of the file server," a job posting from Microsoft, via Mary Jo Foley, reads...Read more on Our Forum

Windows 7, 8, 9 Midori PDF Print E-mail

Is Windows dead? Or, at least, is this the beginning of the end for Microsoft's proprietary operating system? And, if so, what solution/platform will be THE Windows killer? It's not like candidates are in short supply. From the Google Browser (Chrome) to Linux, Mac OS X, to RIA platforms, to dedicated thin clients, to Microsoft's very own Singularity and Midori non-Windows operating systems, Windows killers come in a variety of flavors, but none with sufficient kick to wash down Microsoft's flagship OS for good. At least, not for the time being. Windows 8 and Beyond: Microsoft has debuted planning for Windows 7 even before Windows Vista hit the shelves at the end of January 2007. And, approximately a year ahead of the delivery of Vista's successor, the company is looking beyond Windows 7, planning for Windows 8, and even beyond that, for Windows 9. Even though it is indeed exploring non-Windows alternatives, with all indications pointing to the Midori incubation ending up as a commercial project, while Singularity will remain a research-focused initiative, Microsoft is, in fact, committed to Windows.  Windows 9 Codename: Midori:  See also this article: OS.

Newton's third law of motion states "To every action there is an equal and opposite reaction,” well this applies to writing software as well as Operating Systems.  So let’s take a look at Newton's 3rd Law of Motion in action as applied to an Operating System.  Action: Release Windows 7  Windows 7 is a reaction to Windows Vista.  We all know Microsoft is going to release Windows 7 in the very near future to replace the failed Windows Vista.  The Windows 7 Team has made W7 to be faster and less of a system resource drain than any previous versions of Windows yet.  Windows 7 will be introduced with 6 versions meaning the work must proceed with the Release to Manufacture (RTM) date rapidly approaching.  Reaction: Windows 8 on the Horizon  With Windows 7 well underway, there are plenty of teams within Microsoft who are looking to the future. Yes, Windows 8 is not only confirmed as existing as its own entity but Microsoft is currently looking for people to fill the proverbial shoes of planning. Perhaps the codename for Windows 8 is just that; Windows 8, and not "Orient" or "Mystic," as previously rumored. With Windows 7 being the current codename of Microsoft's upcoming OS, "Windows 8" as a codename makes perfect sense, though ultimately an assumption on my behalf at the moment.  Newton’s law of motion is always in effect, therefore in keeping with  "To every action there is an equal and opposite reaction,” it is only appropriate to follow that action presented with windows7newsinfo with the first and our newest site windows8newsinfo.
