Windows 7: Windows 7 : Available October 23

Windows 7 : Available October 23

Windows 7 will be ready a bit early, according to an executive at the world's third-largest PC maker, Acer.

On Thursday Acer UK marketing director Bobby Watkins told tech blog Pocket-lint.com to expect the new operating system by fall:

"23rd October is the date the Windows 7 will be available. There is a 30 day upgrade time so that customers don't wait to buy a new computer, so if you buy during that 30 day period, you'll get a free upgrade to Windows 7," Watkins is quoted as saying.

That's also the day Acer will release its Z5600 PC, an all-in-one desktop built specifically around Windows 7 features.

Microsoft has previously stated that the final version of Windows 7 won't be ready until January 2010. The first release candidate of the new operating system will be available Thursday to some developers and to the public next week.

That appears to be the RTM release date though not the actual public (off the shelf) date.

That is true. I am sure they will give the official version to the companies making the computers a little early just to make sure everything still runs as it should from testing it on the RC release.

But really I hope since they still have about 5 1/2 months to go I really would like to see greater improvements in speed with boot up and overall just more smooth.

Yeah it is amazing now, but never can be fast enough lol

I would love to see the day that as soon as you see your desktop from a fresh boot up it is ready to use the same way it responds as if you had it running for a while. I have yet to see any computer do that, but I have not been around computers with tons of ram and super fast CPU's. I am happy to say Windows 7 seems to be the fastest at doing so however!

A solid state drive or two will do this...
