Windows We already know some of the directions Windows 7 will be exploring: a system-wide multitouch user interface framework, a focus on performance, all while building on top of the groundwork Windows Vista has laid out. While off-hand remarks have been made concerning the operating system's release date, it appears Microsoft now formalised the release date of Windows 7.

has MS *ever* released a major new version of Windows on time?

Win7 will have the same Vista architecture. There're no major architectural changes in Win7 because the major architectural changes have already done with Vista
Win7 : Vista = WinXP : Win2000 (minor architectural changes in Win7 compared to Vista, minor architectural changes in XP compared to Win2000)
Vista : WinXP = WinXP : Win98 (Major architectural changes in Vista compared to XP, Major architectural changes in XP compared to Win98)
