    I hate when companies do this. The reality never matches the hype. Just announce the stupid thing, whatever it is. when the time comes.

    Maybe they are going to announce Windows 9 ;)

    Also heard that they are going to announce a Tablet for use with Win 8 / Metro. As a lot of people will skip this version because of the missing Start Menu.

    Metro is perfect for tablets but not really for desktops.

    Aren't MS going to remove all legacy code for the start menu from the Definitive Version ?

    Where you saw Microsoft stating that?

    BTW Start8 is a bit different from older Start Menus.

    Woah i just hope this isn't true. If it really turns out like that, then i have no sympathy for Microsoft and hope their W8 is a major FAIL. So bad that they will have to patch it back in a short time or do a major redesign. :D

    My guess is MS buying Nokia. Or at least some further entanglement between the two.

    Assuming it even is a tablet, what would be the point of going through the effort of making their own and then not making it a viable purchase with a high price tag?

    I don't know. Microsoft would be between a rock and a hard place. If they come out with a really competitive tablet price and feature wise, then they would just be ~ Snipped as per TOS ~ their OEM's. Guess we will see what it is Monday.

    Edit: I don't like it but that is one of the advantages Apple has. They control the hardware and software.

    If I was to guess it would be the annoucement of Windows Phone 8 based on the fact we have heard so little about it and Microsoft has kept the topic of this annoucement also quiet.

    Other new stuff, Win 8 and Win RT has been less secretive and plans have been discussed so no need to be so secretive about announcements.

    Now I wonder if they will announce the future of WP7 devices (if they are upgradable to WP:cool: ?

    Cheers, Nick
