More Windows 8 hints, this time on the virtualization front

Microsoft watchers have combed through a leaked slide deck about Windows 8 over the past couple of weeks for clues about Microsoft’s next version of Windows. A French site,, this week unearthed some additional Windows 8 information, as well.

Granted, the new Windows 8 information is “old.” It dates back to March 2009, when published the first part of an interview with Bernard Ourghanlian, Technical and Security Director with Microsoft France. Microsoft may have shifted its Windows plans and priorities considerably since then.

But the interview still contains some telling tidbits about Microsoft’s thinking, regarding desktop virtualization and system updates which may become part of Windows 8. And given the fact that Microsoft officials said last year that systems-management/updating technologies would be key to Windows 8, I’m inclined to think at least some of what Ourghanlian discussed still holds.
