Microsoft "Windows 7" Expected to be Released in 2010

Sources close to Microsoft have revealed that the next version of Windows, code named "Windows 7", is expected to ship in around three years. The new version was a topic at a recent field sales force meeting.

Few details are known about plans for the new operating system other than it will have 32- and 64-bit versions and come in consumer and business editions like Vista did. A subscription mode is also being considered.

"Microsoft is scoping Windows 7 development to a three-year time frame, and then the specific release date will ultimately be determined by meeting the quality bar," said a spokesperson for the software giant.
