Windows Thanks to Windows Server boss Bill Laing, we now know that Windows Server 2008 R2 will be released this calendar year. Since Windows Server 2008 R2 is the server version of Windows 7, we can deduce from this announcement that the successor to Windows Vista will certainly arrive before the end of the year. And what's up with the "quite major announcements" about Windows 7 Microsoft is talking about?

Laurence Painell told PC Pro that there will be a "couple of additional, quite major announcements" in the coming weeks.

The same sort of 'major announcements' that Windows Vista Ultimate purchasers were expecting but never received? I'm sure there are many Windows Vista users out there who are going to be saying to themselves, "I'll believe it when I see it" given the litany of broken promises during the development process that never made it.
