Looks like Microsoft is keen on adding to our 2012 doomsday fears. Microsoft said that it will be releasing the next version of Windows in 2012. This is still speculated based on a press release in Netherlands which said, “Microsoft is on course for the next version of Windows 8 which will take about two years before it hits the market.”
This press release backs up previously leaked rumors about a possible Windows release in 2008. Since this still speculation and just a project road map dates are sure to be changed. Especially with Windows 7 still being digested by the market, it might be just too soon for Microsoft to introduce Windows 8. However Windows 8 is said to be completely touchscreen and tablet oriented with smooth GUI’s like Apple’s iOS.
