Windows 7 is an upcoming version of Microsoft Windows operating System for use on personal computers. In 2007 Microsoft estimated that Windows 7 would have a three-year development time frame following the release of its predecessor Windows Vista, but that the release date would ultimately be determined by product quality.
Windows 7 is expected to includes a number of new features, such as advances in touch and handwriting recognition, support for virtual hard disks, improved performance on multi-core processors, improved boot performance, and kernel improvements.
In January 2009 users got their first taste of W7 when Microsoft released a beta version of the operating system. However, after Windows Vistas’ high system requirements, more restrictive licensing terms, and lack of compatibility with some pre-Vista hardware and software resulted in criticism and low initial adoption rate, Will users rush to Windows 7? The charts below gives us a view into the future by detailing W7 beta adoption since its release in January 09, and follows it as it works its way into the market place.
