Adventures in Microsoft PR

or, even when he’s (almost) gone, he’s not gone…

From Yahoo News, April 4, 2008:

Microsoft Corp. co-founder Bill Gates said on Friday he expected the new version of Windows operating software, code-named Windows 7, to be released “sometime in the next year or so.”…

A company spokeswoman said Gates’ comments are in line with a development cycle that usually releases a test version of the software before its official introduction.

Give her credit for a nice try, but I do not think that word means what you think it means. Perhaps “or so” would have been a better target?
