That is exactly how M$ describe every new piece of their Software the Best Ever. All 7 which is OK is is a Development of Vista which was badly panned by so many probably incorrectly but when they dumped that and gave it a new name it's accepted as the best thing since Sliced Bread. What a Crock. Col

I agreed, again Tech Republis proves itself to be another useless "BLOG" on the web.. All advertsiers I will ensure I do not buy your products because Tech Republis is just irresposnible and prefers to waste the working IT professionals time and therefore MONEY!!

Er hmmm yes windows 8 ................... so are we to believe that Microsoft are going to commit Technical Sucide and release Windows 8 as a rebadged Windows 7, perhaps windows 7 se as they did with the long dead windows 98????? LOL

If you really look at it, the Windows 8 on the first screen doesn't quite look right. Also, in regards to the copyright part. Historically, MS has shown a date range in the Copyright area. So now because of that Copyright date being fixed like that, technicaly someone could come out with a product named Windows 8 in the year 2011 and MS would be screwed for releasing "Windows 8" My verdict - Fake.

...the excitement is gripping! Why did anyone even bother posting this article? There is nothing great or new about these screenshots...if someone actually had the opportunity to sneak some pictures of Windows 8, then why the heck would they choose these two screens? I think not.

2 pictures? These could of easily been doctored. Second screen looks like the current WU. Good thing is that they may not plan major UI chanmges - if these are real.
