Microsoft launched a big pile of meh with Vista when it hit the market a few years back. The follow up to Vista, Windows 7 has been much stronger in sales with lots of consumers and corporations upgrading to the latest OS from Microsoft after abstaining from Vista.

Windows 7 is still really new on the market having only celebrated its first birthday recently. According to the blog post over the weekend the follow up to Windows 7, being called Windows 8 for now, is under construction.

The OS is about two years away according to the post. We all know that new OS' from Microsoft have a tendency to be delayed, sometimes for years so don’t hold your breath on that two-year launch window. There have been leaks that suggest the next version of Windows will have an app store like Lion will bring to Mac users.
