3 good things may come out of this:
1) a new kernel that loads faster and takes less memory (but will be cluttered up with crap by the time the desktop shows
2) keeping the Desktop process separate from explorer.exe (sort of an overlay)
3) Likely to be the last MS OS with a 32 bit version. I'd expect the 64 bit version to be the primary seller - with the 32 bit being an optional sale that not most folks know about.

And yes, we'll need all new stuff to go with it! :huh:

Just When You Get Used To Vista

If I persevere and study very, very hard, I might be used to Vista by then.

Color me skeptical, but I'll believe it when I see it. I would be more inclined to believe that a new OS would be available in 2011 or so, if not later.

January 26th, 2008. Looks like Microsoft is NOT planning to release Windows 7 in 2009. Microsoft's official response, by an email dated 26th January, 2008, to WinVistaClub states that Windows 7 is still in the planning stage and will take approximately 3 years to develop. The following is the extract of the mail:


Q. What is the expected timeline for the availability of Windows 7?

A. We are currently in the planning stages for Windows 7 and expect it will take approximately 3 years to develop. The specific release date will be determined once the company meets its quality bar for release.

Q. Has Windows 7 been released to manufacturing?

A. We’re continuing to work with our partners on the development of Windows 7, and are not sharing any additional information at this time.

Q. Is the schedule for Windows 7 being moved up due to poor Windows Vista sales?

A. We’re not sharing additional information on Windows 7 at this time. However, we’re confident that many organizations are recognizing the value in Windows Vista. Of note, sales of Windows Vista licenses have now passed 100 million. In addition, Windows Vista is being adopted by businesses at a rate that is similar to past releases. In the business market there are early, mainstream and late adopters, with the majority of businesses falling into the category of mainstream. We’re seeing positive indicators that we’re already starting to move from the early adoption phase into the mainstream, and that more and more businesses are beginning their planning and deployment of Windows Vista.
