Why I never blog or socially network about work.

The discovery came to light after Microsoft Research employee, Robert Morgan, carelessly left details of his work on the social-networking site, LinkedIn.

The senior researcher's profile said he was: "Working in high security department for research and development involving strategic planning for medium and longterm projects. Research & Development projects including 128-bit architecture compatibility with the Windows 8 kernel and Windows 9 project plan. Forming relationships with major partners: Intel, AMD, HP and IBM."

If they're developing 128bit windows, what are they going to use for processors??? Two X64 processors in series???

Or would that be 2 x64 processors in parallel????

I'm so confused.... :thumbsup: :flowers:

They're collaborating with processor makers on the new architecture.
