Windows 8, or vNext, or Longhorn take 2?

Here we go again? Hopefully not.

DailyTech is reporting on a deleted blog entry from an MS employee that says that what they have in mind for the next version of Windows will be very different. Sounds familiar? Makes me think of Longhorn.

I take it that since the blog entry was axed means that the Sinofsky regime still plans on:

  1. Not talking about the feature set until they have it pulled together.
  2. They don’t want to get the hype machine going.

Now I know that most of the Windows enthusiast sites hate this because it hurts their ability to get that scoop, but after as we learned with Windows 7 it is for the best.
