Technology as a way of life

Life is the art of drawing without an eraser...

Microsoft announced today that Windows 7 will be released October 22nd. Although Microsoft said Windows 7 would be out in time for the holiday period, I doubt many people expected such an early date. A Windows 7 RTM build should hit the streets around August.

Users who purchase a Windows Vista based system from the summer should expect to be offered an upgrade offer, rather than having to pay the full price to buy Windows 7.

Manufacturers already seem to be licking their lips in anticipation of Windows 7’s release, so expect to be bombarded with Windows 7 promotions this Christmas:

“We’re locked and loaded for the launch,” McKinney said. “The quality of code is just absolutely stellar.” Phil McKinney, chief technology officer of Hewlett-Packard’s computer unit.

Man, I can't wait. Vista's nice and all, but W7 just seems to be such a step up in terms of stability and overall aesthetic. Less is more, and Vista is far too much.
