Microsoft are obviously hard at work on the successor to Windows 7, Windows 8 is early in development but is meant to include some very cool stuff like support for USB 3.0, Bluetooth 3.0, facial recognition, stereoscopic 3D, instant on booting, HID, accelerometers, proximity sensors, hard drive encryption, GPS integration, as well as a strong focus on boot time, shut down time, and battery life.

 

Rumors have also included two user interfaces, a new push for PC gaming (hopefully!) and a sneak peak at CES 2011.
