Well well well , its been not much time since Microsoft showed off Windows 8 tablet devices at D9 conference and Computex 2011 earlier and we have started hearing about Microsoft next operating system Windows 8.
Recently Microsoft corporate vice president Dan’l Lewin ,who takes care of strategic and emerging business development has somehow hinted us about Windows 8 release date.According to him we can expect Windows 8 in next autumn. He shared his thoughts at start-up LAUNCH event at the Microsoft Silicon Valley campus. Here what Dan said :
We will be in market – if you look at the crystal ball and just say what happened in the past is a reasonable indicator of what our forward looking timelines will be and just speculate – we’ve made the point about having a developer conference later this year, and then typically we enter a beta phase, and then in 12 months we’re in the market, so let’s make that assumption.
Also when asked about Microsoft move towards ARM and tablet devices , he thinks that they entered market pretty late.He added :
We have a commitment to our installed base. With Windows 7 on a huge number of devices, we have a very sound and terrific baseline. Given the scale, we have a very strong belief system about that commitment, and a very large customer base that thinks about managing these systems; so systems management, enterprise infrastructure, all those kinds of things.
