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.

in that case its not a major revision and hence not windows 7.

windows 5 was windows 2000 while windows 6 is vista. i would expect windows 7 to be an incremental update too, but in that case the naming fails and only adds to the confusion.

wouldnt be the first time mindless journalists messed up the concepts though.

Actually, wouldn't that technically be Windows *NT* 5/6/7? ;)
