338w ago - Bill Gates may have only just said his goodbyes, but the Microsoft machine keeps on running with the company announcing information about the release of Windows 7.

The paint may not have even dried on the Windows that is Vista, but it seems that Microsoft is already looking to launch its successor within the next two years.

In a letter to enterprise and business customers on Tuesday, vice president of Microsoft Bill Veghte announced that the approximate launch date for Windows 7 is January, 2010.

Seventh heaven

In the letter, Veghte wrote: "Our plan is to deliver Windows 7 approximately three years after the January 2007 general availability launch date of Windows Vista.

"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.

"Our goal is to ensure that the migration process from Windows Vista to Windows 7 is straightforward."

Well, if Intel is anything to go by, it won't be the migration from Vista to Windows 7 that will be the problem, it will be the migration from XP to Windows 7 that most computer users will be worried about.

If Microsoft has announced a rough date for the windows 7 release, then they are likely far enough into the project for the public to see a leak within a reasonable amount of time. Companies can't seem to stay clamped down very well, not that I complain.
