Via: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/technology/8081003.stm

Windows 7, the next major operating system from Microsoft will go on general release on 22nd October 2009 it has been annoucned.
This is the follow up to the some what unsuccessful Windows Vista OS, on which Windows 7 is based. This time around Microsoft is hoping to avoid some of the bad press that it received last time around, by ensuring 100% compatability with Windows Vista systems and a Windows Xp Mode that can be used to run older software that might not run on the new OS.
It is reported to have similar system requirements to that of Vista, but is bring with usability improvements and, according to Beta testers, improved performance, in particular with regards to starting up and shuting down.
I am glad to hear that they are improving the security features, I am fed up of having to click OK on boxes whenever I try and run certain setups or applications!
