Microsoft chief Steve Ballmer on Monday confirmed that Windows 8, the next iteration of the software giant’s operating system, will be available in 2012.

Speaking at a Microsoft Developer Forum in Tokyo today, Ballmer said Microsoft is “obviously hard at work on the next version of Windows.”

“As we look forward to the next generation of Windows systems, which will come out next year, there’s a whole lot more coming,” he continued. “As we progress through the year, you ought to expect to hear a lot about Windows 8. Windows 8 slates, tablets, PCs, a variety of different form factors.”

variety of rumors regarding Windows 8 have popped up on the Internet in recent months, but Microsoft has yet to confirm any particular features it will add to the OS. While Ballmer didn’t go into detail about what Windows 8 users will see, he did outline several areas into which Microsoft is committed to investing.

One of those areas is the natural user interface, or “the notion that we really want to speak, wave and gesture, touch and mark on our computing devices,” Ballmer said. Microsoft wants your device to recognize you and your actions, like Kinect does for gaming (and your Netflix and Hulu queues).

To that end, Microsoft is also focusing on natural language. “Today on a PC, it’s file open, blah, blah, blah, respond, reply, forward. I can’t just say to my device, get me ready for my trip to Tokyo,” Ballmer said. ” We ought to make it so that the search engines, and the user interface of the device can take actions on our behalf.”

Microsoft is crying about suing all Linux and open source users before and after the launch of vista. From the reviews written by eminent professionals, it is clear cut that there is no reason specified by Microsoft. They bought suse to strike at the open source community with proprietary claims., their claims were futile.

Now having sold just 244 license of vista in the Chinese market, which I believe that Microsoft has sold w.r.t the what vista had to provide, its pretty good. Oh and to add their wonderful list of multiple updates and patches before and after the release of the much delayed and much awaited vista. How much they have sold in the North American,Europe, ASIA is to bee seen.

Anyway coming back to the claims that every grandmother who uses Linux has to pay Microsoft a royalty is foolishness, that would have one statement that Microsoft is making now money down the line. They are not even making money in the office 2007 line too. They have a sharepoint system which only corporates of size greater than 1000 find useful and worth paying for.

Finally just ignore the crying baby, its finally going to stop and start minding its own business. Business if it has one.

is it actually possible to remove the osx and install wxp or install wxp with osx?

I am posting this eventhough my blog is moved to another location.

I was wondering as to why Atariboy and scobelizer stays on top of blog ranking. Atariboy has blogmad to get a number of hits. now the hits are directed to wordpress.
whereas scoble is a well known face in the tech crowd. The comments are well formated and this is where he gets his hits.

So its not a surprise they are both on top at some point. Currently Scoble is on top.
