Microsoft: Windows 8 about two years away

Microsoft has been extremely tight lipped about Windows 8 availability but a posting on Microsoft’s dutch news site hints at a two year wait for the next version of Windows.

“Furthermore, Microsoft is on course for the next version of Windows. But it will take about two years before “Windows 8 ‘on the market,” said a posting celebrating the first birthday of Windows 7. This confirms that the software giant isn’t planning to rush the next version of Windows out of the door. Microsoft CEO, Steve Ballmer, recently admitted that the next version of Windows will be the software giants riskiest product yet.
