Microsoft employee just posted details on Windows 8 on their blog, claiming it is going to be “completly different from what people usually expect of Windows,” and that internally, they’re calling it “Windows.next.”
Shown above is a leaked Windows server roadmap from a year ago, that marks 2012 as the year of a “major release,” with “codename – Windows 8″ mentioned.
We already knew Microsoft will be shifting its attention to Windows 8 this July, so although this latest slip-up doesn’t elucidate much, at least we can think about what the employee means by a “completly different” Windows. Does he mean it won’t have a built-in spellchecker? [MSDN via Microsoft Kitchen via SlashGear] [Gizmodo]
