Microsoft : Windows 7 still in planning stage & will take 3 years.

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's enquiry, states that Windows 7 is still in the planning stage and will take approximately 3 years to develop.

While the answers to the other 2 questions may have been on predictable lines, what is important to note that Microsoft TODAY maintains that Windows 7 is STILL in the planning stages and it will take approximately 3 (more) years to develop.

Windows has always drawn speculation; probably because it is so intrinsic to everything that we do with computers. Windows 7 was originally time-lined 2011, later reports put it at 2010; and now 2009 ! All this smoke of Windows 7, being released next year, may have led to confusion in the minds of the Windows Vista user. Did he make a mistake in upgrading? Or should he have waited? Microsoft feels that there is STILL a lot of innovation and value that needs to flow to the customers, from Vista.

And should one put off plans to upgrade from XP ... and wait for Windows 7, instead ? Resist the temptation to do so! It too will have its share of problems which any 1st year OS is expected to ! Instead focus on moving forward with Vista, if you plan to upgrade from XP. The best time to do so, if you ask me, would be after the release of Vista SP1.
