Windows 7 and the Future

As a quick follow up to my previous entry, a very timely YouTube video was uploaded today.  It is by Christopher Barnatt, who has made many interesting videos on his channel ExplainingComputers.  Here he discusses the future timeline of Windows 7 and what it means for users.

As I stated before, I am looking to make the transition to Linux.  However, I have applications that will not work with Linux.  These are my video and audio applications.  Even though there are many video/audio programs for Linux, none have the list of features that compare with what I currently have.  This will be a problem I will need to solve by the time Windows 7 is no longer supported.
