This is so old. I have stated this several times. They have jsut hit Milestone 2 of the new version of Windows. That is still 3 or more steps away from the Beta stages which is still several steps away from RC stages which is at least 3 steps away from RTM.
It took Vista over a year to get thru the Beta stages and to RTM. There is no way that Microsoft will get thru Milestone, Beta and RC in a year. It took them 16 months with Vista. Even if they started now they would be lucky to hit Windows 7 release berfore December of next year.
Do not believe the junk written by them. They are just trying to get attention for their magazine. Microsoft's offical release date was 2010. Anything other than that is strictly speculation.

But most likely the release is for businesses? Consumer release in 2010. Any other useful info in regards to the new OS at the meeting?
There is no info cause there has been no info released. Anything that has been said to people is under a strict NDA (Non Disclosure Agreement). I know i have one myself. I can say that anything before 2010, the official date Microsoft has set, is purely speculation. Any info on Windows 7 right now is just speculation. Nothing has been offically stated by Microsoft otherwise.
