Windows 9 is a long, long way off.
This is just a placeholder.
A continuation of my Windows 7 blog.

There'll always be place for an Operating System and despite all the talk of Cloud computing, Windows will have a place. The fact that netbooks started off as Linux machines and then very quickly became dominated by Windows XP, to the tune of 94% Windows XP, shows that people tend to choose the Operating System they are comfortable with.
Windows 9 will almost certainly use the new Windows architecture rumored to be debuting in Windows 8.
If not, Microsoft might consider making huge changes in Windows 9 to compete with the dominating technologies of the time.
- It'll be out in around 2014-2015.
- Software, Operating Systems, the Internet will all be vastly different by then.
- Mobile will be much, much more important.
- Google will either be the Internet, or be dead.
