Weekly Poll: Windows 8... When?

· Java Zone

Microservices! They are everywhere, or at least, the term is. When should you use a microservice architecture? What factors should be considered when making that decision? Do the benefits outweigh the costs? Why is everyone so excited about them, anyway?  Brought to you in partnership with IBM.

Today's Windows 8 release got us wondering, "When did we actually start using Windows 7?" I, personally, got my Windows 7 key pre-release from being a member of the ACM. My former roommate, on the other hand, didn't pick it up for two years, holding on to his XP build. Realizing we'll likely have the same differences this release, we have this week's poll: "Windows 8. . .  When?"

Please note that question one is asking when you adopted Windows 7 (on any machine - work, home, or other), and question two is asking when you will adopt Windows 8. You'll get to review the community results immediately after completing the poll.
