Steve Ballmer believes it's ok to wait for Windows 7

Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer has been at it again (no not the shouting) telling analysts that people can wait for Windows 7 if they like.

In a Q&A session with Gartner analysts Neil MacDonald and David Mitchell Smith at the Gartner Symposium ITxpo in Orlando, Ballmer said "Windows 7 will be Vista, but a lot better" according to ZDNet.

"If people want to wait they really can," said Ballmer. "But I'd definitely deploy Vista" he noted. Unfortunately that's not likely to fill the confidence boots of investors or customers who have been put off by Microsoft's Vista offerings.

Earlier this month Ballmer hinted at a forthcoming operating system "Windows Cloud" that would help developers write Internet-based applications.

Microsoft will be revealing all about Windows 7 at PDC and will unveil exactly what Windows Strata really is too.
