Windows Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates said on Friday he expected the new version of Windows operating software, code-named Windows 7, to be released "sometime in the next year or so". The software giant has been aiming to issue more regular updates of the operating system software that powers the majority of the world's personal computers. Nevertheless, Gates' comments suggested that a successor to the Vista program might be released sooner than was generally expected.

I've had the same thought. Vista's failure says to me that it's not about the OS, but the apps. Functionality and performance is more important than looks. Not to go off on a tangent but i think this is part of the reason why no matter how many folks chime in with the OS X is more polished/elegant/etc. than XP, it just doesn't matter. Folks use computers to get things done. They can ignore the quirks and oddities when it works.
