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.

Inability to spell is actually rather a sign of being British... read this on the tube yesterday - how convenient ;)

Seriously, any German's spelling who learned English from grade 5 - 13 beats that "achievement" hands down. My last colleague was an English lawyer and she had me check her spelling all the time... omg. So, how about your German then? Is it any good..?

That was a rather interesting link you provided there, just had to read it through ;) But that is scary! People who naturally speak english as their native language can't even spell "embarrass"? Wow. I am not a native english speaker and I do think it's pretty clear from how I write sentences, but even then I don't make such glaring mistakes.. Funny thing is that actually most finns I know can speak and write pretty good english even though it's not even one of the national languages here. It's just so....baffling ;)
