(UK) Windows 7 deliveries?

Seems that, in the UK, a postal strike is set for *** 22 Oct ***! Seems we might get a late delivery of our lovely new OS !!!

Anybody any insight...? eg I ordered (as many will have done) from Amazon to take advantage of early discount. I see conflicting news about Amazon's strategies to cope with Royal Mail strike...

Well, I am in the know to know, lol, that another well known Parcel delivery company will getting a lot of work from Amazon, so I wouldn't worry too much about items like that, your post however is a different story, which I don't know anything about btw.

Yup, 2 24hr strikes have been scheduled for the 22nd and 23rd

I've just emailed Amazon to ask how they will be dealing with this, I'll post again if/when I hear back.

Dear Customer,

Thank you for taking the time to write to us with your concerns.

I wish to take this opportunity to assure you that Amazon.co.uk will be doing everything it can to ensure that customer orders are not disrupted as a result of Industrial Action at Royal Mail. This will include routing orders through our other carrier partners.

Once it has been dispatched, we will send you an e-mail message confirming the date, contents, and method of delivery.
So fingers crossed.

I'll have to check as I ordered mine through Tesco so will have to see if they have any plans.
Mind you they could always deliver it with my shopping which will be the 22nd anyway
