Despite Microsoft claiming that the upcoming Windows 7 isn’t even close to completion and insisting Vista will be around for a while, the software giant has already handed over a test version of their next-gen operating system to a technical committee that is overseeing Microsoft’s compliance with its antitrust settlement.
While the submission of Windows 7 to the technical committee doesn’t reveal much about the operating system, it does indicate how serious Microsoft is in getting its next client OS out the door. The company has talked up a 2010 release for Windows 7. That’s three years after Vista’s release, whereas the much-condemned Vista came more than five years after the introduction of its predecessor.
