Bill Gates says he expects the new version of Windows operating software, code-named Windows 7, to be released “sometime in the next year or so.”

The software giant has been aiming to issue more regular updates of the operating system software that powers the majority of the world’s personal computers. Nevertheless, Gates’ comments suggested that a successor to the Vista program might be released sooner than was generally expected…

He said new versions of Windows would help revolutionize mobile phones and run the desk of the future, which would have a touch surface display allowing users to call up items using their hands.

“Sometime in the next year or so” is knife-edge specific for Microsoft.

    This is a precious thread: Gates has turned in to an old man, ignoring the fact the technology Windows is based on is dated and broken… and you guys can’t call him on it because you find yourselves stuck using it.

  2. Jeff says:

    The joke is going to be on the consumer when Microsoft releases Windows 7 and it is mostly a repackaged version of Vista. This OS is going to be evolutionary and not revolutionary.

    I hope and pray that windows 7 will be consumer friendly cuz man vista sucks and I used it.
