NZ, Australia to get Win7 first

The first retail sales of Windows 7 will take place in New Zealand and Australia on 22 October, Microsoft confirmed this week.

"Our understanding at this time is that the availability of Windows 7 will 'follow the sun' on Thursday October 22," a Microsoft spokesperson said late yesterday. "As such, we're excited that the first retail sales globally of Windows 7 will take place in New Zealand and Australia as we cross the dateline ahead of other markets."

Aw does that mean all the people on the US west coast will be the last to be able to get it

That would be a change or is Redmond going to be working on Auckland time

I suppose the one good thing is that you'll also be the one of the last to have to give Microsoft all your money
