May 4th 2009 7:09PM I'm sure they mean Enterprise will get the additional 5 years along with Business???

Windows 7 RC coming May 5 for public consumption, out now for MSDN / TechNet subscribers? (Engadget)

Apr 18th 2009 8:01PM This is also why if you were an early adopter you're Windows 2000 drivers worked most of the time on XP and your Vista drivers work most of the time on 7, basically the same Kernel.

Windows 7 RC coming May 5 for public consumption, out now for MSDN / TechNet subscribers? (Engadget)

Apr 18th 2009 7:57PM I haven't read through all the comments to see if someone properly cleared this up or not, but......

To clarify the numbering scheme that got us to Windows "7"

NT3.1 - Windows NT 3.1 - Build 528 - 1
NT3.5 - Windows NT 3.5 - Build 807 - 2
NT3.51 - Windows NT 3.51 - Build 1057 - 2
NT4.0 Windows NT 4.0 - Build 1381 - 3
NT5.0 - Windows 2000 - Build 2195 - 4
NT5.1 - Windows XP - Build 2600 - 5
NT6.0 - Windows Vista - Build 6000 - 6
NT6.1 - Windows - Build 7000 (Beta, Final Build # Unknown) - 7

Server 2003 and Windows Home Server are both NT5.2
Server 2008 is NT6.0
The NT Version is Kernel versions, so Windows "7" is just an upgraded Vista Kernel, not a whole new one like from XP to Vista or NT 4.0 to Windows 2000
So Windows 7 is actually just an upgrade of NT6, not a whole new version.
