Steve Ballmer, Microsoft CEO said the company will not wait so long betwen major upgrades of it’s Windows OS. It has taken them over five years to get from Windows XP to Windows Vista. In that same time, Apple has shipped 3-4 versions of OS X. I don’t see anything at Microsoft to indicate how things will be any different for the next version of Windows. They did put a new manager in charge who is known for shipping products on time, but I’ll believe it when I see it.
