Well I'm sure Microsoft have a clear road map going forward like any other major project development, so a 3 to 4 year gap between each release isn't really surprising to be honest.

I wish MS would put windows on the unix kernel like apple did with OS X.

A. Cause massive compatibility issues.
B. It would, potentially, make the kernel open source which would be a nightmare. There's already to many variants of unix around and this would confuse people even more.
C. What would be the point? I can think of no benefits what so ever to having a linux kernel or there own purpose made one - they've spent many years and millions of pounds on there own kernels so why change now?
