Favourite OS
Windows Neptune & Longhorn
Look at this:

Microsoft is secretly working on a new OS with the core team of Vista, sounds exciting? well indeed it is. Some insiders have told me that this new OS is not based on DOS unlike all Windows and it wont be prefix Windows just Omnigo as for now. This OS is being built for their future devices such as Surface and upcoming Gadgets(I sense Mac OS X) and moreover the development is moving rapidly as if Microsoft is planning to release this by 2008 itself. The team behind this project have all been the part of original Windows thus everybody is really enjoying working together and enthusiastic about this upcoming OS.

Coming on to features it is confirmed that you wouldn’t require keyboard or mouse to use it, It will be used in touchscreen interface and since its being developed from scratch specifically for such devices. It might give Mac OS X a tough competition with gadgets like Surface, Zune Phone (maybe).

Lets hope for the best, although we can’t really expect much from Microsoft but if everything turns out well. They can gain the reputation back with the upcoming Surface Table and the new Technologies being developed all while giving Apple, Googler really really hard time.

Microsoft Corporation is an American multinational computer technology corporation with 76,000 employees in 102 countries and global annual revenue of US $51.12 billion as of 2007. It develops, manufactures, licenses and supports a wide range of software products for computing devices. Headquartered in Redmond, Washington, USA, its best selling products are the Microsoft Windows operating system and the Microsoft Office suite of productivity software.

Windows Me was the end of DOS-based Windows. It's already 2008, and nothing has come of this.

Additionally, this is a very old rumor. Microsoft is very unlikely to drop the Windows name unless something big comes along.

These, coupled with the fact that there are an absurd number of "revelations" in this unprofessionally written news article make me believe that it quite a bad hoax.

- LOL. People move on, I doubt half the people from Microsoft in 1984 work in the Windows development area right now. Very amusing read though.
