Windows 8 to be released in 2011?

How long has Windows 7 been out, 6-8 months? Apparently Microsoft already has plans for Windows 8. A leaked document by former Microsoft employee Chris Green [1] reveals that Windows 8 may be released in 2011:

(Windows 8 probably won’t be called Windows 8 when it is released.)

The document also gives details on other products such as Microsoft Office 2012 which, not surprisingly, may be released in 2012. Read the full report [3] for more detail.

This is very interesting, very interesting indeed. Of course, it could be a fake leak, or a spiteful employee getting the last laugh at this employer. It is worth mentioning that some of the facts are not correct in the document, such as Windows Vista RTM was released November 6, 2006 not January 25, 2007 and retail was released January 30, 2007 not January 25, 2007. Still, it is very interesting. Feel free to share your comments below.
