thats all i want for cristmas is windows seven.....

just found this on the register

A senior Microsoft wonk has hinted that Windows 7 could hit the shelves in time for Christmas.

MS veep Bill Veghte said in an interview with Bloomberg earlier this week that “a holiday release is accomplishable.” However, he declined to comment on whether Vista’s successor could in fact go on sale any earlier"


Some analysts have speculated that Microsoft’s next operating system could land as soon as September.

Meanwhile, a release candidate version of Windows 7 will be made available to Technet and MSDN subscribers tomorrow, while the masses can get their hands on it next Tuesday, 5 May.

Microsoft has also created a new website named TalkingAboutWindows.com in an effort to get developers and sys admins, who haven’t already grabbed a copy of various leaked builds of the OS via a BitTorrent tracker site, to learn more about Windows 7.

"IT professionals can listen as our engineers discuss why certain product decisions and feature trade-offs were made in Windows 7," wrote Microsoft’s Brandon LeBlanc on Monday.

Windows 7 might rock up in 2009, says MS veep € The Register

I highly highly doubt they will miss the holidays.

They are just about to release the RC and if they can call it that it has to be close. I am sure they will tweak it some more and do whatever and give the 3rd parties some time to do the programs, but I bet September/October would be a very strong bet on when it will come out!

Preferably, Windows 7 should be released around August, just in time for back to school notebooks and computers. But then, you don't want to be handing students an unstable OS; as MS stated Windows 7 would ship based on product quality; there is no fixed timeline.

Christmas is fine, I mean I guess if students could hold off that long. Or maybe students could get a Vista-based laptop and upgrade.

Missing the holidays? Unlikely, the Windows 7 development has been on a fast track and missing the holidays means an something huge has happened.
