Windows 7 Will Ship Mid-2009

CNET reports that Windows 7 will ship mid-year 2009, just in time to find its place under the tree on pre-configured machines by the 2009 holiday season. After taking a look at our continuing Windows 7 coverage, will you be first in line for Windows 7? [via Gizmodo]


  • Back in the early days of Mac OS X. Apple provided Mac OS X 10.1 as a free upgrade to clients that were using Mac OS X 10.0. They did this cause 10.0 was kind of crap.

    It would be nice to see Microsoft do the same thing for us Vista users and provide Windows 7 as a ‘thank you’ for putting up with what has been a lack luster at best operating system.

  • I’m definitely not buying Windows 7 next year when it comes out. Firstly, there is not much difference compared to Vista. This is also probably the shortest gap between a Microsoft OS – meaning that there was the least amount of developing time invovled than all other Microsoft OS’s. And I reckon when it does come out, they’re going to have hundreds of different versions all priced differently. It would be good if they provided a free or cheap upgrade – there’s not much difference between the two (Vista and 7).
