The sheer volume of excitement about Windows 8 has taken me quite by surprise with more leaks than we ever saw with Vista or Windows 7 in the same time-frame. The excitement and hype easily matches that of Google’s Chrome OS in the same period of its development, even though when the operating system finally arrives it will undoubtedly be a very hard sell to businesses and the general public.

Microsoft tout the features of Windows 7, its stability and reliability almost to excess. Certainly it’s the most stable, reliable and dependable operating system the company has ever produced.
