Windows So far, Microsoft has been very tight-lipped about Windows 7, carefully trying to prevent another Longhorn PR disaster where the company promised the heavens and more for Longhorn, but in the end ditched Longhorn to make way for Vista. Chris Flores (Windows Client Communications Team) as well as Steven Sinofsky, has broken the silence a little bit to talk about Windows 7. In addition, it is believed Windows 7 will make its first official debut at the D6 All Things Digital conference today, during a keynote held by Steve Ballmer and Bill Gates.

How is MS going to compete???


The single biggest thing that MS has going for it is its huge install base. So, in a sense, the playing field has less to do with whatever random features that Linus or anybody else adds to Linux but, rather, about how well MS maintains backward compatibility while simltaneously moving the ball forward. With that kind of lock-in, MS almost can't fail. I realize that it's going to come as a shock to many of you, but Vista is steadily gaining market share. Within a couple years, it will account for over 50% of the market.
