 Post subject: What’s Coming with Windows 8?  Topic is solved
New postPosted: Fri Jul 16, 2010 5:41 pm 

When Will Windows 8 be Released?
According to the article, Microsoft currently plans to ship Windows 8 by mid-2012; thus, the first beta should be released by mid-2011 and public beta should follow by the end of 2011. Windows Server “8″/2012 is also being developed concurrently.

User Detection
Windows 8 will likely support detection of which user just walked in the room so that it can automatically turn on your PC, log you in, and play your favorite music. When you get up and leave, Windows will automatically log your PC off for you.

I love this idea. It'll show once and for all who's the boss when my wife and I walk into the room together!
We won't have to get microchipped like our dogs, will we?

I kind of worry about when that day might come. Then again, I'd be likely to microchip my kids. Would really come in handy were they to get kidnapped, or if they decided to take the car and drive somewhere without telling me =D

Back on topic, though, I think Windows 8 will be for the most part just like Windows 7; minor changes, and the addition of user recognition. I don't want to get carried away, like some of the early rumored photos of Windows 7's ui; those circular docks and supposedly super advanced interfaces were way beyond what really happened :p

This is what I thought was so funny
Read the Talkbacks, thought I was going to pass a kidney stone.

How do you get an update screen-shot, Mind you with updates on a system that has not been released. Is there something I'm not aware of. Maybe testing,,,here's my sign :o

yes unfortunately you will be micro-chipped because no one can buy or sell unless they bare this in their hand or forehead...
