Microsoft Predictions for 2008: No Windows 7 news is good news
Windows 7 exists. Folks inside Microsoft are running early builds already. Does that mean we can count on seeing test builds of Windows 7 in 2008? I bet not. I'd be very surprised to see any kind of broad tech preview out next year. The only thing that would surprise me more: Istartedsomething.com blogger Long Zheng being appointed as Microsoft's new Director of Windows Client Disclosure.
Bottom line: If you're hoping to see 7 in 08, don't hold your breath.
