Word is going around that Microsoft is planning to release Windows 8 on January 7th, 2013 and that Windows 7 SP2 will be published in 2012.
Infamous leaker Wzor.net has just posted up a slathering of information, and judging by the site's past leaks, it should be semi-reliable. Before we go any further, none of this information is verified or is confirmed but is speculation from a reputable individual who, in the past, has provided solid information and leaks. On that note, lets dig into the information posted.
For Windows 7, Wzor states, "Service Pack 2 is already actively underway since the autumn of 2010, and if all goes according to plan then the appearance of a second service pack, Service Pack 2 for Windows 7 and Server 2008 R2 is expected in mid-2012 " and looking forward to Windows 8, Wzor states, " Windows 8 is scheduled for the very end of 2012, so it really can be called: Microsoft Windows 2012 Apocalypse Edition, at least the server version will be named as Windows Server 2012."
