Windows 7 fast-tracked for June 2009 release?

Public beta could appear in October

Late last week, we covered reports claiming that the first Windows 7 beta release was heading for a December outing.

Windows 7 fast-tracked for June 2009 release?

Now, however, if this article from InternetNews.com is to be believed, the Windows Vista successor has a planned release date for June 2009 - June 3rd, to be precise.

This information has apparently been sourced from an internal Microsoft calendar and, with Windows 7 being touted as an evolutionary step-up from Vista, it is suggested that a public beta will actually release on October 27th instead.

Whatever transpires, it certainly does appear that Microsoft is eager to put Vista out to pasture and, as the company steers Windows 7 towards general release, this is definitely one to watch.
