An interview with Steve Ballmer has been posted at Gartner.com. He says that the next Windows operating system, Windows 7, will be like Vista but a lot better.
“Windows Vista is good, Windows 7 is Windows Vista with clean-up in user interface [and] improvements in performance. Look, I’m not encouraging anybody to wait, I’d go ahead and deploy it right away. We didn’t have to go in an incompatible direction to make big strides forward,” he said.
“There’s no reason to do just, quote, a minor release, in two-and-a-half years,” he added.
