Windows 7 might be released this year. This according to a column by Ina Fried at CNET. Microsoft has not announced any plans to release this latest version though but rumors abound. Ina also said Microsoft is working on a program to offer Vista buyers a free and low cost upgrade to this version. This may happen sometime in July. Hmm, should I wait buying a new PC since I don't have Vista? Previous blog post suggest Windows 7 will cost around $300!!! Whoa.
Ina FriedMicrosoft is moving forward with plans to launch Windows 7 this year, although the company still refuses to publicly commit to that goal. PC industry sources in Asia and the U.S. tell CNET News that they have heard things are on track to launch by this year's holiday shopping season, which has been Microsoft's internal target for some time.
Windows 7 is pretty. And fast. Well, the betas that I have are. Although I haven't really gotten a good use of them being busy dealing with the usual evil doers. As I've written in a previous post, the install was painless and quick. Some software wouldn't install, some were installed fine.
My latest install is build 7022.
