Windows "Reading the mainstream media this weekend, you'd believe that Bill Gates announced that Windows 7 will be released to retail in 2009. The only problem is, he didn't say anything of the sort. What Gates said merely confirmed what we've all known all along: that Windows 7 is being developed on a three-year timeframe."

There's no news here. This is just a summary of Gates' comment and common sense. I'm a little suprised why this is considered news.

It's based on the premise: if a misinterpretation of the quote is news, so must a correction of that misinterpretation.

Also, nothing else seems to have happened today.

Well, Gates' hasn't clarified his comments, so I guess this is an interpreted correction to an misinterpretation? :-\

Where reactions to Gate's off-hand comments are involved, common sense *is* news. ;-)
