Windows 7’s release date spurs up speculation

Bloggers Ed Bott and Long Zheng have dugg up information about when the next version of Windows, 7 might be released to manufacturering. Of course, the speculated date given is no surprise, ‘November 2009’. Microsoft has always promised that Windows 7 would be available by late 2009, even Steve Ballmer identified this earlier in the year. Here is a quote from CNET back in May of this year:

Quote: Update: Ballmer says it will come in late 2009. Corporate VP Julie Larson-Green demonstrated the multitouch technology, painting with several fingers at the same time to show how it can process not just touch, but multiple simultaneous input. Read the entire story here 

Mary Jo foley had more to say on the date itself, by getting a much clearer response from Company officials at the time:

Quote: When I asked Microsoft for yet another clarification on Windows 7’s ship date last night, executives said the difference between Ballmer’s latest pronouncement and Microsoft’s stated timeframe was “really only a matter of a month or two.” Remember; Microsoft’s Windows team’s new mantra is underpromise and overdeliver. It looks better to say you will ship in 2010 and actually deliver in 2009 than it does to say 2009 and have your due date slip into the next year. Read the entire story here

Even Bill Gates said it before his retirement that there would be a new version of Windows coming next year. A lot of this regurgitated news stems from revelations that there will not be a WinHEC conference next year. Which makes sense, since WinHEC basically provides IHVs with information around hardware and software synergies for the Windows platform coming in the near future. All of that information will be revealed this year at WinHEC 2008, there basically would be nothing new to discuss and I’m sure Microsoft will be too busy wrapping up development to start communication about the release after Windows 7.

ASUS manufacturer of the Eee PC, noted that support for multi-touch wouldn’t happen until Windows 7 hits market.
