Microsoft employee talks up new Windows
by Fudzilla staff on11 February 2010
Now for something completely different
Hexus dug up a Microsoft blog post from the deep chasms of Google cache and it turns out the outfit is rather confident about the successor to Windows 7.
The bloke who wrote the post is part of Microsoft's Windows update team and one of the first things he wanted to clear up is that the name of the new OS hasn't been carved in stone just yet: "So how am I referring to the next version of Windows without saying that many words - well simple - Windows.next:) This is definitely not the official version but a version that is becoming common along my circle."
The blog goes on to say that the new version "will be something completely different from what folks usually expect of Windows.
"To actually bring together dozens and dozens of teams across Microsoft to come up with a vision for Windows.next is a process that is surreal! The themes that have been floated truly reflect what people have been looking for years and it will change the way people think about PCs and the way they use them. It is the future of PCs," said the anonymous blogger.
The post was removed by Microsoft, although we have no idea why, as it really didn't reveal much of anything, other than the branding, or lack thereof. You can check out the full post over at Hexus.
