Microsoft finally acknowledges Windows 7 will ship in 2009

Microsoft officials are finally admitting what many company watchers, customers and partners have known for a while: Windows 7 is going to ship in 2009.

Specifically, Windows 7 is going to be generally available in time for holiday 2009. Windows Server 2008 R2 will ship ¡§in the same timeframe,¡¨ officials are conceding.

If you¡¦re thinking you read this somewhere before you have: In late April, a senior Windows exec told Bloomberg News that shipping Windows 7 in time for the holidays was ¡§accomplishable.¡¨ On May 11, during the kick-off keynote for Microsoft¡¦s annual TechEd USA conference, the Windows team is going way out on a limb and saying they actually WILL ship Windows 7 in time for it to be preloaded on holiday PCs.
