In a roundabout way, and just assuming here, Spring might be the time when Windows 8 is formally announced and a beta is unleashed. In an interview with Softpedia, Mr. Ondřej Vlček – Avast CTO, said that he has something scheduled with Microsoft this Spring. Let’s home Microsoft can get the OS into developers hands well before the launch so we don’t have another Vista moment with dev’s not having enough time to fix their applications… Or so they said.
Softpedia: Have you had any contact with Microsoft regarding Windows 8? Have you seen any technology preview?
Ondřej Vlček: Not yet. We have something scheduled for this spring. Hopefully we will get our hands on an early build and find out what changes break things, so we can modify the code to be ready when the product ships.
