Windows 7 RTMs, Dunks on LeBron James

With news of Windows 7 making it out the gate, you'd think the media was reporting on a miracle. Well, the Dow jumped above 9K on news of home sales and values ticking upward and Chicago White Sox pitcher Mark Buerhle hurled a perfect game today, the first such feat since, oh, 2004 (ancient history in Internet years). Windows 7 RTM'ing is just a coincidence, right?

Windows 7's impending public release is supposed to be some sort of signpost that Microsoft is going to get back on track. At least that's the hope, anyway, despite one report that says Windows 7 adoption won't happen until well into 2010. That report might need to be revisited, if evidence of wild pre-sales figures in Japan are to be believed. (And on a side note: Microsoft announced a sharp drop in sales, affecting its quarterly revenue report today.)
