I found a Site that tells you quite a bit about the upcoming Microsoft Windows, Windows 8/Horizon. Here's the Link: http://windows8center.com/.

Yeah, Horizon isn't the official name, I just made that as a suggestion when I was making my OS and stuff. It's not the real name lol :) Windows 8 will just be "8" for now. Sorry, corpse.

I agree. I find that those types of sites generate more rumors and misinformation than facts. How often do you hear people claiming "I heard that there was going to be such and such in such and such OS," long after that "information" had been debunked as nothing more than a rumor. Sure, they may sometimes be right, but it's when they're wrong that it causes problems.

It says that Windows 7 will be the last 32bit OS. If thats true we will see it around for a long time on all the systems that cant run 64bit, im thinkin pentium 4s and netbooks.

I imagine netbooks will go 64bit by the time windows 8 comes out, if they are cutting 32bit.

Trust me, I've said it before, I'll say it again - I've heard from some pretty reliable sources that the consumer-oriented versions of Windows 8 32-bit will exist. To what degree, who knows, but they will be compiled.

I wouldn't trust this site with my pet walrus, and that's saying quite a lot. Their latest news post is a rumor that was denied by Microsoft all the way back on October 8th.

It seems that somebody just take information from BetaArchive and put on his site...
Because we discussed 128-bit processors. And we discussed Windows 8 name suggestion - Horizon. But it's not real name. So they just take information...

*Yawn*, no search up Windows Horizon. This Site's making up fake News? Wow, I can't believe that. I think I would've known before posting a Topic about it. Why is it that the People on Beta Archive say the exact comments & news about Windows 8 that's on the Site? I wonder... oh, yeah... the People on here must be making fake News as well. I'm just guessing.

Corpse, where is the proof that what is mentioned on this site is true? It needs citation.

Nono, it was just a rumor that was circulating around that Microsoft has already denied. It's not that it's fake news, but it's that they're reporting old, incorrect news as if it were false. Check out the link I posted from Bink, a respectable community, on the matter.
And HurricaneGeek admitted he made up the Horizon name, isn't that proof enough? :|

There is probably a very early build of windows 8 but i would think it would run on windows 7 kernel and would be almost ezakly like 7.
So hopefully someone finds one and posts it on here.
