Coming Soon: Windows 7?

Coming Soon: Windows 7?

Well, maybe not as soon as you think, but it is in the works! First of all, allow me to explain what Windows 7 is, just in case some of you haven’t heard about it yet. Basically, Windows 7 is the name of the next big operating system to come from Microsoft. It will succeed Windows Vista by just a mere three years. That’s right, Microsoft announced last week that Windows 7 is planned for a January 2010 release. That’s only 18 months away. Wow!

Microsoft senior vice president Bill Veghte sent a letter out to all Microsoft customers last week to give them the good news. The letter was titled “An Update on the Windows Roadmap” and it talked about how they want to provide their users with a more “regular, predictable Windows release schedule.” They didn’t want to wait another five years like they did between XP and Vista. Veghte also promised that Windows 7 will be much more “straight forward,” unlike parts of Windows Vista.

He went on to talk about some of the compatibility issues everyone had with Vista and how Microsoft wants to make sure that doesn’t happen with Windows 7. He said they are building from the same core architecture as Windows Vista, so the work you already put into Vista will still pay off with Windows 7. So, even if you’re not too happy about another new operating system hitting the shelves, at least it sounds like it will be a little easier to work with. I don’t know about you, but that makes me feel a little better about the whole situation. That’s all the information I have for you now, but I will continue to keep you updated as more news rolls in!
