Windows "Looks like Microsoft is not planning to release Windows 7 in 2009. Microsoft's official response, by an email dated 26th January, 2008, to WinVistaClub states that Windows 7 is still in the planning stage and will take approximately 3 years to develop." So there.

Perhaps they need a new release schedule?

Seems to me all the other players are on a release often schedule. Perhaps that's why Windows is getting left behind so badly. Mac OSX releases major revisions yearly, and a lot of the Big Linux distributions release every 6 months.

Perhaps Microsoft needs to shift their development style to something similar releasing yearly builds that maintain decent compatibility for a much smaller price like $100 similar to Mac OSX.
