If you were one of the attendees at the Microsoft Professional Developer’s Conference (PDC) in Los Angeles last week, then you walked away with the Milestone 3 (M3) build of Windows 7. The M3 build isn’t even a full Beta build – it’s pre-Beta!
Now, I can’t tell you when a public Beta version will be available. Nor can I tell you when Windows 7 will be released (three years after the Windows Vista release is about the best I can do). What I can tell you is that we’ll be blogging about Windows 7 in the very near future – just as we did prior to the release of Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008.
In the meantime, to whet your appetite, we wanted to share some Windows 7 links with you:
- Welcome to Windows 7
- The Windows Blog – the October 29 post has some comments from some folks that are very critical of Windows about their impressions of Windows 7 following the PDC keynote
- The “Engineering Windows 7” Blog – we gave you this link recently, but for those that really want to see how Windows 7 is shaping up – this is the source!
- Windows 7 for the Enterprise – right now, there are some previews of the new features and key investments
- Windows 7 Developer Guide – get started building your Windows 7-ready applications now!
- PDC 2008 Site – watch recordings of the PDC sessions and the keynotes
Just a short post today to put you on the road to Windows 7. Watch this space for more!
