Over the weekend a set of slides appeared on an Italian blog (site got removed) that are supposed to reveal Microsoft's plans for Windows 8.
One of the slides suggests that Microsoft wants to take some pointers from Apple for the development of Windows 8.
MSFTKitchen has detailed the leaked features of Windows 8. Overall it is still very early stages as Windows 8 is not expected before 2012. By then we already use transparent OLED Tablets with gesture input and get to work in flying cars.

The slides appear to be an early briefing for Microsoft partners. MSFTKitchen also reports that Microsoft is apparently looking into the source of the leak.

Microsoft just unveiled that they have sold more than 150 million Windows 7 licenses. Microsoft is still the undisputed OS market leader.
