Windows 8 is coming. Are you ready?
Just as Windows 7 was able to run on less powerful machines than Windows Vista needed, Windows 8 will have even less stringent system requirements than Windows 7. That's pretty remarkable in and of itself, but it's even more impressive when you watch the demo and see just how fast and responsive Windows 8 looks, especially when flicking through applications. It's worth noting that the Start screen is the most sweeping interface revision that Windows has seen since the jump from Windows 3.1 to Windows 95 over a decade and a half ago. Whether it will be as successful remains to be seen.
Of course, the features that Microsoft showed off yesterday are just a few of the changes coming in Windows 8, and the company is promising a much bigger reveal at its mid-September developer conference, Build. When pressed for a release date, Sinofsky wouldn't even confirm a 2012 launch, only saying that the OS won't be out this fall.
