«One of the things that I think is a good guideline though is we've always said that Windows releases come round about every three years and this year will be three years in October since we launched Windows 7. So I think that's a good guideline to consider,' — said Janelle Poole, director of public relations of the Windows Business Group during the briefing dedicated to Windows 8.
Everybody's anxiously waiting for the stable version of the OS which is in its pre-pre-beta phase for almost half a year already. Not only geeks are anticipating the release, however: device producers are looking forward to it as well. For instance, Acer representatives admit that, 'when the next generation of Windows launches', they are planning to launch another wave of Ultrabook products. By the way, they also mention the second half of 2012.
