If there are no major architecture changes, but more fine-tuning of what we already have in Vista, then 2009 sound fine to me. Besides, three years between versions used to be just fine.


I think it will depend on the sucess of Vista SP1, if there's still a lot of issues after the service pack it will obviously delay development quite a bit.  The EU could also decide to be huge jerks (and probably will).
