Analyst: Windows 7 ready this summer

Posted on Tuesday, March 10 2009 @ 16:49:05 CET by

While Microsoft keeps talking about a Windows 7 release in 2010, Collins Stewart analyst Sandeep Aggarwal estimates the new operating system will be ready by June or July. Additionally, Aggarwal suggests Office 14 should come in early 2010 and that a search deal with Yahoo is likely to happen sooner rather than later.
Officially, Microsoft has said only that it will have Windows 7 on the market by next January, the three-year anniversary of Windows Vista's mainstream launch. However, the company has been aiming to have it out in time to be on PCs that ship during this year's holiday shopping season. PC industry sources told CNET News last month that Microsoft continues to push toward that goal.

The release of Windows 7 should allow Microsoft to make $1.5 billion in additional revenue, Aggarwal said, with nearly $1 billion coming from the upgrade market and as much as $680 million possible if Microsoft is able to increase the number of premium versions of Windows being used on Netbooks.
