Windows 8 to be shown at CES?

Written by David Stellmack

Rumor mill in overdrive once again
Whispers started late last week that Microsoft might be planning a special sneak preview of Windows 8 during CES. At first, we didn’t think much of the rumor, but now multiple sources are saying that Microsoft could, in fact, be planning a first strike with a look at Windows 8 during CES.

Sources tell us that if Microsoft does go ahead with this sneak preview of Windows 8 to the world, it would likely be a showing of the whizz bang features of the future OS and how they will apply to the new technology that they are talking about:  namely the tablet and software as a service in the cloud.

While we have heard strange rumors of Microsoft talking about products that are far off in the future, we have to admit that we find it hard to believe that Microsoft would even want to start talking about Windows 8 yet, when it is still riding high on the sales of Windows 7. While we doubt there will be any real showing of Windows 8, it is possible that it will be mentioned.

If this is legit, then it can only be another Windows 7 but with slight user improvements seeming it's too soon after the current OS, although I don't even think we should be thinking about Windows 8 atm, Windows 7 is a prime OS, I'd say it's still got about 5 years in it before it starts to become outdated, should Windows 8 receive features like DirectX 12 then it's only fair for Windows 7 to receive the same treatment, Vista was messed up and didn't deserve DX11 but it still got it

It's amazing how this is unacceptable for you, yet you dont shy away from AMD releasing the 6800's so soon after the 5800, only to not outpace it. I think you should kill yourself.
