Windows 7 Engineering with Steven Sinofsky and Jon DeVaan

From Windows 7 Engineering MSDN Blog

The Windows Team is building momentum towards the next major release of Windows, "7" which is expected sometime in early 2010. The blog will focus on engaging with Microsoft Partners and Customers in addition to enthusiast and bloggers. Teching It Easy will be there all the way, recreating the experience first started with ‘Windows Longhorn’. Here is a quick quote:

"Welcome to our first post on a new blog from Microsoft—the Engineering Windows 7 blog, or E7 for short. E7 is hosted by the two senior engineering managers for the Windows 7 product, Jon DeVaan and Steven Sinofsky. Jon and Steven, along with members of the engineering team will post, comment, and participate in this blog.

Beginning with this post together we are going to start looking forward towards the “Windows 7” project. We know there are tons of questions about the specifics of the project and strong desire to know what’s in store for the next major release of Windows. Believe us, we are just as excited to start talking about the release. Over the past 18 months since Windows Vista’s broad availability, the team has been hard at work creating the next Windows product.

The audience of enthusiasts, bloggers, and those that are the most passionate about Windows represent the folks we are dedicating this blog to. With this blog we’re opening up a two-way discussion about how we are making Windows 7. Windows has all the challenges of every large scale software project—picking features, designing them, developing them, and delivering them with high quality. Windows has an added challenge of doing so for an extraordinarily diverse set of customers. As a team and as individuals on the team we continue to be humbled by this responsibility."

I couldn’t think of a better way to start this conversation. The team is focused on delivering accurate information and really present what’s real and what’s possible with this release of Windows. I personally believe in the focus on under promising and over delivering and that’s definitely what I believe we can expect this next major release. Yes, during Vista’s development there were promises and some disappointments along the way and the Windows Team is trying avoid that as much possible and I applaud them for the effort.

This early part of the conversation is targeted at developers and hardware engineers of course, and most persons interested will be able to get there first experiences with the OS this fall at the Public Developers Conference 2008 (PDC) and the Windows Hardware Engineering Conference 2008 (WinHEC).
