Microsoft's Windows 7 Shipping On October 22nd
Bill Veghte, senior vice president for Microsoft's Windows business, stated that the company "felt confident that it would deliver Windows 7 to its partners on October 22." We had earlier heard a "fall" time frame, but this is the first mention of a specific date. The shipment will be just a bit late for the back-to-school rush, but it will be on shelves with plenty of time to spare for the holiday season.
Not sure if you've noticed, but October is coming up soon. Just a few months remain before a new OS option will be made available to you -- so, are you planning to upgrade from WinXP / Vista? Linux? OS X?
