Quote:
When it comes down to the deadline for the general availability of Windows 7, Microsoft has been undeterred from its initial claims that the next iteration of the Windows client would ship within three years of Windows Vista's GA. However, this is not exactly the case, revealed a computer-industry executive from Asia. In fact,

Microsoft seems keen to beat its three years from Vista GA estimate for the delivery of Windows 7. A report via Bloomberg indicates that the Redmond company is actually planning to wrap up Windows 7 well ahead of the 2009 holiday season, namely in the September – October 2009 time frame.

Will that mean that 9-10/2010 will see SP1 for 7? SP1 for Vista came out in a year's time just it's predecessor XP saw it's own SP1 in 2002 overcoming the 137gb barrier as one of the fixes then.

If 7 is out that early I'll likely be picking up the retail package for seeing both 32bit as well as 64bit versions of the particular edition decided on. That will accomidate a few things.

Usually Softpedia is one of the few more reliable sources while you still have to wait until Microsoft makes any actual annoucements before getting yourself all hot and bothered so to speak. It's their product to begin with.

So far there's been about 2 or 3 newer builds seen given to testers since the 7000 was made public. Once the beta stage passes then you still have to go through the Release Candidates likely to take another 3-4 months there. With Vista RC1 was seen in 9/2006 with the actual release seen 4 months later on 1/31/07 taking that into consideration.

I hope I get a free copy it instead of Vista when they send out those feeback panel gifts. RTM in that period and in time for the holiday season is very plausible.

I'll try not to! All they are doing there however is giving out some type of approximate time frame according to what they have been hearing anyways.

The main difference with 7 however is having more of a base to work off of while Vista/Longhorn saw countless delays supposedly. With Vista final they can progress further from there with 7 since Vista caught many offguard hardware wise and have now raised the minimum requirements to compensate even while 7 has seen some refinements in that direction.

In fact, from Chen's report it is unclear whether or not he expects Windows 7 to RTM and to be served to OEMs in September/October 2009, or if either of the two months will mark the general availability of the platform. Because if indeed late September or early October is to witness the RTM of Windows 7, the operating system will take quite some time, up to a couple of months before it will hit the shelves.
Read the 'fine' lines in this report .. it doesn't say that Windows 7 will be rolled out then.
I'm one who is waiting for the final release on a purchased DVD. My money is saved up for it!
