I bought Vista the first day it was out. Of course I was looking for something to run on a new build being planned at the time. For 7 I'll likely end up with both 32bit and 64bit versions of the edition I pick out once the comparison page is seen.

As far as being ready and then hitting the shelves that always takes time to get everything out to distributers prior to the actual release day. Copies of Vista Ultimate were pretty much wiped in a few hours on 1/31/07 for that release locally. Can you imagine the lineup for 7 when the release date is finally annouced.

Are you kidding. I'll be buying birthday gifts and late or pre holiday gifts to see several upgraded. Nothing like a bulk order to see everyone with the new version then out.

I'm glad to see that you share the same excitement they many of us have here.

I am a proud owner of Vista Ultimate, but loved SP1

after Windows dumped "the FAT years" "95 through 2000, I was happy, I can now upgrade from Windows 2000 (an NT OS, hum strange) to a home user version of NT, which was called XP, but greatly disappointed until SP1, but ultimately SP2, what a freaking mess. Then Vista was a vast overhaul of the user interface, which made me buy vista Ult in June of 2007.


Note: XP is awesome, don't forget it's history. 3.51 & 4.0 ithink

"but ultimately SP2, what a freaking mess. " - the security issues that set back everything

its my wonder that after all these years people forgot about how messy it was with XP came out ( upgrades especially because of two different architecture paths being 9x and NT specifically i remember that being the last time i upgrade a OS again win9x upgrade to xp that i ultimately scrapped the system and cleaned installed it) and how before people complained about the requirements and the number of bugs (at launch that was huge compared to vista) ...
i still remember....

I was dual booting 98 with XP for some time before Vista was first announced. But that was far from the first dual booting seen here going back into those dos/3.1...eventually 9x 95/98 days.

I'll miss the Classic Winodws theme but have to look at the rest of 7 having seen it in beta form here. And yet I'm booted in Vista for seeing IE 8 RC1 go on there without even having to reopen a page to resave any favorites since the transition went smooth.

I really hope it's out in September because I don't want to reload another OS for that short time after the Beta expires if it were to come out in December or whenever lol. I see this beta running out in August but maybe will be able to keep it longer by a few tricks and wait until the final comes out!

But if it does come out in September those programmers for Microsoft must be working 24/7 non stop.

I will be camping out for this OS! Ok well maybe not, but will for sure buy it the day it comes out without question!

Well, there is the RC that's supposedly coming out in April. You're not going to install that?

It is widely expected that the Windows 7 Release Candidate will arrive in April, 2009, though whether the rumored April 10 date holds remains to be seen. Just over a month from now, we'll likely be playing around with the RC and wondering when the final will arrive. Despite the fact that Microsoft...

Connecting the dots is so fun. Usually I don’t speculate about release dates, especially if the only source is “I heard from my step-brother’s uncle who knows someone who works on Windows”, but I’m pretty confident about this one. Twitter user “remtiwk” had pointed out to me something very...
