Another New Windows?

Another New Windows?

That may sound like an odd question, but it seems to be a hot topic lately. According to several online articles, Microsoft has confirmed that the next new version of the Windows operating system will be released in just three short years. That seems impossible, doesn’t it? I mean, with Windows Vista only being a few months old, how could they possibly be thinking about another new version already?

Well, that’s just how the business works, I guess. It is said that Microsoft is trying very hard to pinpoint a timeline for this new release. That way, they won’t have to struggle with so many set backs and delays like they did with Windows Vista. That’s nice of them to do, but it still seems like things are moving just a little too quickly. You see, there was a five year gap in between the release of Windows XP and Windows Vista and it looks as if Microsoft is trying to cut back on that this time around. They’re always thinking of new ideas and they want to share them with the world as soon as possible.

With all that aside, the new Windows operating system is going by the name of “Windows 7” for now, but that will likely change by the time it’s actually released to the public. For instance, Windows Vista went by the name of “Longhorn” before it finally became available. As of right now, a specific date is not scheduled for the release of Windows 7 and in the end, that will be determined by how well it meets the quality bar Microsoft sets for it. So, if you’re already longing for a new operating system, hold tight. It will be here before you know it! And as always, I will continue to keep you posted on this. As soon as I hear anything, you’ll be the first to know!
