Relax, it was just a dream

For anyone who went into shock over the rumours that Windows 7 might be released next year, it is safe to come out now. The Inquirer looked into it and found some very convincing evidence that we won't see Windows 7 until some time after the end of the Mayan Calender. Any correlation between those two dates are just speculation at this time.
"In an email to WinVistaClub, the Vole reportedly stated that Windows 7 is still in the planning stage and will take
approximately three years to develop.
About three years to develop. Hmm. So, what with its planning - which is not yet completed, it seems - plus internal
testing and pre-release user testing, that means that the new, hopefully vastly improved Windows 7 won't appear until at
least 2011, at the earliest."
