Windows 8 - RIP?

It's behind a paywall so I can't get details, but:
In reference to www.ft.com/home/uk:

The article basically says that there will be another version of Windows and that it won't be identical to Windows 8. Who'd have thought it.

And that Google search is helpful... how?

All it does is refer (directly in one case, indirectly in the other) to the FT article I quoted. Both, you may note, timestamped before my post- I'd seen both of them.

Go back to bed.

You can register with the FT and get/read a number of articles/month free of charge.
After that if you want to access more stuff then yes, you do need to pay.
I Think the D.Telegraph is/has going the same way.

http://blogs.ft.com/tech-blog/2013/05/why-the-start-... - free access to blogs and to a handful of articles per week if you're signed up (free).

I set up Win 8 for a guy who had gone and bought it as Vista was slow and getting on his nerves. With a bit of shuffling around his Metro start screen now meets his needs - the two tiles top left are Internet and Email which is all he does really.

Will it be Windows 6.3 I wonder ?

Yes, I noticed that, but as the full article would still be unavailable to those without any form of registration I didn't see the point of giving the link to it.

On behalf of others- thanks for the heads-up though.

Vista, obviously.

http://www.computerhope.com/whow.htm

6.1 was Windows 7 - http://windows.microsoft.com/en-gb/windows7/release-... "This window displays the version and edition of Windows you're running. The final release version of Windows 7 is Version 6.1 "
