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!

Exact same thought… I wonder if Apple will call Windows 7 by that name in their commercial in two or three years…
Lucky seven, right? System 7 sure lasted a long time for Apple. Maybe the same for Microsoft?
The Times has fixed the article.
The New York Times biased?
Say it ain’t so.
The correction did not make into the print copy in “Bits” in the Business section of the 10/27/08 NYT.
