Vista has been, to be kind, a flop. For several months now, Microsoft has been hinting that the next version of Windows, Windows 7, will be the answer. I’m beginning to wonder, though, if Windows 7 will be little more than Vista rehashed.
Microsoft is no longer being coy about the fact that they’re working on a replacement for the wretched Vista. It used to be that the Ballmer would just say things like “Vista is a work in progress.” Now, Microsoft has admitted to having over 2,000 people working on Windows 7. Sounds to me like they’re serious about it.
In addition, Microsoft has launched its Windows 7 blog and has started telling people about what’s what with Seven. What’s even more interesting is that WSUS (Windows Software Update Services) users found a Windows 7 Client option on their patching servers on August 20.
