Windows 8 Launching Next Year ?

Windows lovers are sure to get excited hearing this news. Rumor has it that Windows 8 is going to get released early next year. Though this rumor has been there for a while but still no one has been able to predict the exact date of its launch.

Steve Ballmer, the CEO of Microsoft and head of its Windows division recently announced that Windows 8 will be available sometime next year. During a speech at Developer’s Conference in Japan, he said that,”We’re obviously hard at work on the next version of Windows”.

If we believe the report’s findings, we could have Windows 8 at our doorstep in April 2012. One thing that should be noted here is that Microsoft has never admitted that the name of its new Windows is Windows 8. It has always referred to it as “The Next Generation Of Windows”.

Windows 8 will be compatible on any system which is compatible with Windows 7 which means that you won’t have to add any special hardware to your existing computer.

Windows 8 will feature a touch based mechanism which could be used easily on a wide variety of machines. It will also feature a tile interface, which is already deployed in Windows Phone 7. According to Microsoft,” The next generation of Windows will feature everything new ranging from chips to the interface”.
