Well, sounds cool to me about that Office 14 beta might come out in 2008, and that adobe's ex CEO might join Microsoft.

As for the zune phone, I think that will be comming next year, just as I thought that there was going to be a small flash based Zune (the Zune 4 and Zune 8) back in April 2007.
 


I don't understand why there wouldn't be test builds of Windows 7 in 2008. If development is going to take 3 years, then shouldn't 2008 be roughly to Windows 7 what 2005 was to Windows Vista?

And why, oh, why would a version of Media Center be codenamed Windows 6.5?
 


Well, I think there won't be a broad beta in 2008, but their might be a limited beta I think, like for MSDN suscribers.

As for Windows 6.5, I also find that somewhat weird.
 


If there will be a beta,someone will definitely upload it...somewhere...maybe not a beta but an alpha...
 


Yeah, I hope a beta or alpha gets leaked, so we can see how awesome Windows 7 will be, and finish with the Apple fanboys. :P
