Windows 7 Release

Windows 7 will be available for sale starting Oct 22, 2009.  It will also be included on new computers on that same date.  A coupon offer will be made for an inexpensive ($9-$15) upgrade from Vista by some computer manufacturers for new computers purchased after June 26, 2009.

Also on June 26, 2009 existing Vista owners will be able to pre-purchase Windows 7 for $49.00.   Best Buy will be one of various stores making this offer available.

While I’m on Microsoft news, be on the look out for a free anti-virus by Microsoft available around the end of the month.  This will compete with products sold by Symatec Corp and McAfee Inc.
