* Vista successor coming fast?

PC Games/Hardware/Microsoft
MS may be out to supplant Vista quickly, possibly with something even worse.
If Windows 7 is released in the second half of 2009, this will be three years after Windows Vista which went RTM in November 2006. A three-year major product cycle would take the Windows operating system out of cycle with Windows Server, which is on an approximate four-year cycle.

The big question is who in the market will respond to an early release. The transition to Windows Vista seems to have caused a lot of angst amongst users, but I think has far more to do with moving out of the Windows XP comfort zone, rather than any indication of Vista?s quality or stability.
Memo to Bannan: no, Vista just sucks.
