Windows XP going off, Windows 7 coming up

Filed under: Technology — wan muhamad azmi mamat @ 2:52 pm

After facing a problem with Longhorn in 2004, Microsoft launched Windows Vista on 2007. At the early launching, Vista was told as excellent Microsoft product with new elegance appearance but faced several problems and seem not very stable.

Microsoft originally announced over a year ago that Windows XP would be going off the market in January 2008. XP was later given a brief stay of execution, to June 30, 2008. That deadline is fast approaching, which has led to much panicking from people who aren’t quite sure what XP’s “going off market” means, exactly.

Will Microsoft shut off product activation for XP after June? Read more here.

The new incoming Windows is Windows 7. Windows 7 (formerly known as Blackcomb and Vienna) is the working name for the next major version of Microsoft Windows as the successor of Windows Vista.

Microsoft has announced that it is “scoping Windows 7 development to a three-year timeframe”, and that “the specific release date will ultimately be determined by meeting the quality bar.” Windows 7 is expected to be released sometime in 2010.

Read more here and here.

Why Windows 7? Since Windows Vista is really Windows 6.0, Vienna will presumably be version 7.0. And Vienna has been reshuffle as Windows Seven. And this version is told will support 64 bit architecture.
