Re: An Update on the Windows Roadmap


Today, more than 1 billion personal computers around the world run Windows. Over the years, Windows has been the catalyst for innovations that have transformed the way people communicate, access information, create and share content, and much more, at work and at home. Windows is the platform that most people use to get the greatest value and benefit from their personal computers. Windows is also the platform that brings together the broadest array of choices across PCs, devices and applications. To all of our Windows customers, thank you! To the hundreds of thousands of partners that develop millions of solutions for Windows, thank you.

Your experience and satisfaction are Microsoft's top priorities. I wanted to take this opportunity to share some thoughts about Windows and to answer some questions you may have about Windows XP and Windows Vista.

There are three things I want to give you an update on:
  • Our plans for Windows XP
  • Our progress with Windows Vista
  • Our view on Windows 7

To this end, our plan is to deliver Windows 7 approximately 3 years after the January 2007 general availability launch date of Windows Vista.


mmm... I will not develop a 64-bit version of winbubble. Sorry guys... cause Windows 7 is NEAR!!!

I hope microsoft learned about Windows Vista. :blink:
And give us something that we can use Forever! I mean Useful everyday.not Flip3d! Windows Vista is great and the cost of buying security softwares, ram, laptops and many more
goes down because of it's requirements but the problem is... Many 3-4years ago laptop/pc's cannot run vista!

Hey Microsoft! Are you losing your magic?
Hire me! (lol!) :)

Windows Vista SP1 copies files up to 50 percent more quickly

That's not true! I think it's only 10 percent faster.

Some facts ARE a bit bloated like Johnyboy noted ;)

However a positive thing to come out of this letter is I think we can continue developing apps without fear of compatibility. Thats Good (Y)

You've also let us know you don't want to face the kinds of incompatibility challenges with the next version of Windows you might have experienced early with Windows Vista.

It's big relief.

Which also means those people who skipped Vista will have the same compatibility problems when moving from XP to 7....

Such type of open letters are necessary now a days for suppressing the rumors.
