Google Translation: Furthermore, Microsoft is of course the next version of Windows. But it will take about two years before “Windows 8” on the market.
So what should we expect from the upcoming Windows?. A slide deck which was leaked in July revealed that it will include an App Store for Windows, improved startup and sleep times, and power efficiency enhancements. Maybe some motion control will be introduced in the new windows like the Kinect or it could just be a Windows 7 with a few new wallpapers, useless graphics-hog eye-candy and a reshuffling of all your familiar settings. Only time will reveal.
