Windows 7 to be released for consumers and small businesses by October 22nd
There is a business push for Windows 7, which is already available to larger businesses.
Windows 7 is expected to correct many of the inconveniences percieved in Windows Vista, and even draw those users that never made the change from Windows XP.
Ballmer said he hopes that once the new operating system is available, individual workers will be going to businesses asking them to put Windows 7 on their corporate computers. Ballmer highlights the cost savings that can be achieved. Customers can expect to save $90 to $160 a year per each computer that moves to Windows 7, basically from lower support and management costs.
