For those of you who want to see what the next version of Windows MAY look like, I found this blog posting with some screen shots and info. I can’t confirm that these shots are authentic, but they do look interesting. I also find it interesting that while the posting allegedly confirms a ship date in 2010, there is also the following:
“Microsoft is maintaining a policy of silence concerning discussion of plans and aspirations for Windows 7 as they focus on the release and marketing of Windows Vista, stating that Microsoft does not want to promise features and then fail to deliver, as happened with Windows Vista Ultimate, though some early details of various core operating system features have emerged.”
Assuming that this is true, the other reason that they haven’t commented on this is that users may decide that is probably worth waiting three years rather than buying the failure known as Vista.
