Ed Bott has revealed in his blog that a Microsoft insider has slipped readers the date the Redmond company plans to ship the first beta of Windows 7, the next operating system after Vista. That date, he writes, is January 13th.

At the Professional Developers Conference in late October, Windows chief Steven Sinofsky announced that Windows 7 Beta 1 would be ready “early next year.” A Microsoft insider has now confirmed the actual date, which is indeed very early next year. In a comment on his blog, Keith Combs has revealed that Windows 7 Beta 1 will be available on or around January 13, 2009.

It was rumored to, you know how that usually turns out. But at least they were only a month off. YOu don't have to wait much longer.

Slight improvement in compatibility and performance, the ability to install GTA IV and a 60% change it will screw your PC over until you want to format and re-install.

Ohhh... I want the HP Touchsmart so badly! My guess is that yes, Windows 7 would support that touchscreen, just as every version of Windows since XP has. :)
