I’m sure a team of black helicopters is on its way to Taiwan right now, with orders to pick up ASUS CEO Jerry Shen and bring him to the underground lair of Steven Sinofsky. The offense? Blabbing just a little too much about Windows 7 ship dates.
In an interview with Laptop magazine, Shen said Vista is a nonstarter with his company’s ultralight Eee PCs, especially given the imminent arrival of Windows 7. He predicted that “in the second half of next year we will put Windows 7 on Eee PCs.”
For those who find that surprising, you just haven’t been paying attention.
