Will Windows 7 still be available after Windows 8 is released

Hello everyone I was wanting to know if you would be able to get Windows 7 Disc and Product key after Windows 8 is released. Why I ask this is because I'm going to get a iMac this winter and I'm going to dual boot it with Windows 7. But I remember after 7 was released you could not find a Vista copy at all. So would this be the same? So please help me out. It would also help me out if you could maybe get me just a price of a product key.

Hello Nick,

Yes, you sure will be able to continue to buy Windows 7 at all the usual retail outlets for quite some time after Windows 8 is released.
