Default Hypesphere: nothing to Gates' Windows 7 "next year" quote

irst, the quote that started it all. It's perfect "Chairman"-speak because it doesn't really tell you anything, but it gets the press and blogosphere hot and bothered, and hey, free press is great. Are you ready for the quote that rocked the tech world, leading scores of publications to say that Windows 7 is coming in 2009 and that Microsoft has turned up the heat on its development plans? Prepare thyself:

"Sometime in the next year or so we will have a new version [of Windows]," said Mr. Gates.

That's it.

In a world of tech reporting where one's memory apparently stretches back not to the great Longhorn reboot but instead no further than one's breakfast, Mr. Gates' totally vague comment morphs into a product launch announcement, at least once the blogosphere gets ahold of it.

I think it just shows how badly people want Windows 7.
