Windows 7: Microsoft: Windows 7 release in August '09

Thank goodness, this is really good news. I can't imagine them wanting to hold off buyers who are wanting to buy new computers for the back to school season. I myself was wondering what I am going to do this fall, I will be needing a laptop for college and I certainly wasn't about to get something with Vista.

Well, even if 7 isn't RTM before school starts, I recommend buying a pc or laptop without any operating system installed: barebones. No need to pay for an OS you are not going to use.

Has anyone read something about which languages Windows 7 comes in at first?

I want danish language in Windows 7, but that might be a long road before they reach to such a small country.

"pending feedback" .... the RC was already pushed back, which is fine by me, keep pushing it back if thats going to make it right.

Even if 7 does go out in August no new prebuilds will see it until late October going by the 3 month scheduling. Any school courses will already be in session by then.

A great deal of what will actually determine the release date will be from the feedback MS gets from the RCs. For which language comes first you have to assume English while there's also the distribution factor as well for various locations.

Generally suppliers/retailers already have the disks onhand but simply cannot sell any until the specified release date. When Vista was first released back in January 2007 stores had the disks stocked on the 28th but couldn't put them on display until the 31st being the MS official release date legally.

Is it worth it to buy it around "holiday time" this year? What I mean is that it took like a year to get the bugs in Vista sorted out, and I've been using W7 the whole way, but there are still a lot of features missing in the RC that will be in the RTM.

I went with Vista from day one there since I can always slipstream the service packs in if needed. Generally I simply download the full stand alone installers for each unless later buying a new disk for someone with them already included. Since I won't be going back to XP I won't be buying any XP SP3 disk there however.
