    It may be too early to start a discussion thread for Windows 8, but currently we can do with the latest news and rumors that can be published here.

    Later when the early builds are available for evaluation, information about those can be discussed here. Eventually evaluation of the final builds can be done and results posted.

    So let the first news in!!

    ^ thats the most unlikeliest thing to happen. Even Vista costs more than 5000 in all version. I think even xp costs 5-6 k

    but we can hope for it can't we?

    Yikes! Ribbon interface in Windows Explorer! :shock: I am not sure, if I would like that. I hope they provide a way to disable it.

    That's not true !

    Vista is history, so we talk about Windows 7 : It starts from less then INR. 3000/- ( Oem )

    No technical support. Not reccomended

    Using oem copy for private use is also illegal

    Oem copies are readily available at the Local shops for installing with new systems ( system builder packs ). and its perfectly legal.

    Inbuilt PDF reader! Hmmm. Looks like a progress in the right direction.
    I hope Microsoft also think about a PDF printer as well.

    ^^ There are a lot of awesome programs for doing each tasks on Windows.
    But I have noticed that each in-built tool is very well integrated with the OS. Like I have always preferred inbuilt Photo Viewer in place of let say, Picasa photo viewer.

    I don't think a MS dev would comment so openly. Whatever build or Milestone Windows 8is we can't be sure until a formal news is out.
