Despite the emphatic success of Windows 7, the fastest selling OS in history, Microsoft is hard at work improving the operating system and its successors Microsoft is reportedly readying Windows 7 Service Pack 1 for a June 2010 beta release and a September 2010 final release. The SP1 will bring out of the box support for USB 3.0, one of the most exciting new computer technologies.

And according to Chris Green, a former Microsoft developer, Microsoft is already hard at work on the best-selling operating system's successor, code named Windows 8. The next-gen Windows may be released on July 2011. He leaked an entire release schedule which includes the upcoming Office 2010 and its successor Office 2012.

Microsoft also had some other good news to report. In January 2010, Internet Explorer 8 became the world's most used browser, passing IE 6. IE 8 currently has about a 22.31 percent market share worldwide. Internet Explorer 8's gains have been partially fueled by Windows 7's success -- IE 8 is the default browser on the U.S. edition of the OS.

I dunno, I still think 7 was just a glorified vista service pack released as a full OS out of necessity to silence the whiners and apple, theyve probably been working on 8 for quite some time now

and how in the hell is ie8 becoming the most used browser good news? I mean it comes with the OS and most mainstream users dont know that theres even other browsers to choose from, its hardly something to brag about.

Frankly, if they'd just release service packs for Windows 7, I'd be very happy. [But, of course, there's NO MONEY in service packs. ]

Well, I work at Apple, and when Snow Leopard came out, it seemed like an update, which it sorta was even though there are MAJOR inernal differences. I still consider it an upgrade though, the only difference is that there is only one, full featured SL version that costs 35$CAD. For Win7 you get a not full-featured version (Home Premium) for about 130$CAD retail and that's an UPGRADE.

See it the way you want. Win7 is very good though, I agree.
