Bill Gates' Take on Industry, Education and Windows 7

Monday, April 7, 2008

Windows fans had some very good news coming their way on Friday, as Bill Gates hinted about the follow-up to Vista, Windows 7. According to, Bill Gates said that the new operating system could be launched as early as next year. But for the moment, as noted, is still unclear if Gates meant a beta or a final version.
However, according to CNN, a Microsoft spokeperson hinted that Gates was speaking a beta version.
"As is standard with the release of a new product, we will be releasing early builds of Windows 7 prior to its General Availability as a means to gain tester feedback," according to Microsoft's statement. "We're not sharing additional information at this time."
Besides mentioning Windows 7, during the speech held at the Inter-American Development Bank in Miami, Bill Gates also talked about a new possible approach to business. According to him, businesses should regard serving the poor as part of their mission and governments must see private businesses as potential partners. The speech also went into another delicate issue, namely ways to improve the access to credit and banking to the poor.
Gates said that things would significantly improve if in every industry, businesses started using some of their energy and resources (6 percent for instance) in order to reach poorer sergments either locally or globally. He consideres that such practices are already being successfully implemented. ”Cell phone companies, banks, energy companies, technology companies, food companies, we have a lot of good examples in each of those industries.”
Education was another key topic of the Microsoft leader's speech. He feels that all children should have access to computers, as their use within school work brings a definite efficiency increase. He added that his daughter uses a Tablet PC instead of textbooks at her school, and all homework can be easily forwarded. ”I can help her out on anything where she's confused.”
Whether or not all these ideas, including Windows 7, will turn into reality, remains to be seen.
