Awesome news from Eeepc.net:
Although Microsoft has no plans of releasing their new OS Windows 7 until 2010, Asustek’s CEO Jerry Shen is confident that they would be able to release a new Eee PC with the said new OS. And since Windows 7 would have touchscreen features, Asustek is excited to take advantage of this touchscreen interface.
However Jerry Shen also said that if the Eee PC will have the touchscreen features it might however come out thicker than the usual models of the Eee PC.
So Asus will skip Vista, and go straight to Windows 7? Sounds cool. If they’ll go for Windows 7, then that must mean that future Eees will be powerful enouhg to handle the new OS. This means I can probably hold off all my plans to buy a new Eee (seriously, my 701 isn’t able to keep up with me anymore) and wait for the Windows 7 Eee.
