Every typo tells a tale

In a new report on Microsoft’s anemic Windows sales for the most recent quarter, Steve Lohr of the New York Times writes:

Microsoft has said that Windows System 7 will ship by late next year.

Uh… Windows System 7? You guys have been hanging around Apple too much lately.

Update: The Times has fixed its error without acknowledging it. Thank goodness for screen captures!

  1. Oh my goodness! I noticed that one too!

    Exact same thought… I wonder if Apple will call Windows 7 by that name in their commercial in two or three years…

  2. The correction did not make into the print copy in “Bits” in the Business section of the 10/27/08 NYT.
