As Bill Gates previously said, 2009 could be the year of Windows 7. The specific date we have is June 3rd. Microsoft has said before that it is not launching Windows 7 until 2010, but it seems they were wrong. In a need to harness the consumer back into domination, Microsoft needs to get the approval of its client and more importantly businesses. To do this they need a new product quickly making 2009 seem more sensible.
