    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.

    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
