Windows Earlier today, OSNews ran a story on a presentation held by Microsoft's Eric Traut, the man responsible for the 200 or so kernel and virtualisation engineers working at the company. Eric Traut is also the man who wrote the binary translation engine for in the earlier PowerPC versions of VirtualPC (interestingly, this engine is now used to run XBox 1 [x86] games on the XBox 360 [PowerPC]) - in other words, he knows what he is talking about when it comes to kernel engineering and virtualisation. His presentation was a very interesting thing to watch, and it offered a little bit more insight into Windows 7, the codename for the successor to Windows Vista, planned for 2010.

So we can be assured that it won't be out until at least 2012. And if somebody thinks I'm trolling, has there EVER been a Microsoft OS that has actually been released when they originally said it woudl be since at least Windows 95?


Well, technically, Windows Vista was perfectly on time. It was released on the only official release date ever set - not a day later.
