Confirmed: Windows 7 release in 2010, IE8 in 2008
At yesterday's Microsoft Financial Analyst Meeting Bill Veghte reminded the participants that the product development of Microsoft still goes on after Vista.
Work on the Vista successor is making good progress and the planned release - scheduled at about three years after Vista - is not endangered. Unfortunately this, according to TCMagazine, is all Mr. Veghte could tell and didn't reveal anything new.
But there has been some info about the Internet Explorer 8. The second Beta version of the IE8 is said to be released in August and the final version is expected in the course of this year.
