Pass the salt, I need a grain

After the stunning release of Vista (at least Microsoft was stunned), there obviously seems to be a need for something to follow it up with. The home adoption of Vista has not been anywhere near as bad as corporate adoption, as many home users either ended up using Vista because it was bundled with the machine they bought, or the occasional gamer buying it to try out DX10. In the world of big business Vista adoption is incredibly slow; although larger companies are always slow to change, Vista simply doesn't seem to attract them at all. Paul Otellini goes silent at the mere mention of the word. Service Pack 1 is coming soon, but if this story that Slashdot picked up is true, we will be seeing the brand new Windows 7 coming out in just over a year.
"A recently-released roadmap for the next major Window release — Windows 7 — indicates that Microsoft is planning to
release the new operating system in the second half of 2009, rather than the anticipated release date of some time in
2010. This quickly-approaching release date would seem to be at least partially verified by news of a milestone build
available for review by an anonymous third party."
