As soon as the Windows 7 has been released out, Microsoft already involved into creation of next OS i.e. Windows 8.
Microsoft Started For Next OS, Windows 8 Expected In 2012
Recently we got it from Microsoft Jobs and Career Official Site. Here is the excerpt:
DFSR is Microsoft’s premier file replication engine and is an integral part of our branch office strategy and File Server role. It can scale to thousands of servers and replicate hundreds of terabytes of data. We have shipped the technology that powers file sharing in Windows Live Messenger, Windows Meeting Spaces (Vista) and Branch Office replication in Windows Server 2008 which has strong customer deployment. DFSR technology saves MS-IT and our customers more than 80% WAN bandwidth by using advanced On-The-Wire differential compression.
For the upcoming version of Windows, new critical features are being worked on including cluster support and support for one way replication. The core engine is also being reworked to provide dramatic performance improvements. We will also soon be starting major improvements for Windows 8 where we will be including innovative features which will revolutionize file access in branch offices.
The last three lines implies and confirms that they are started for Windows 8.
