Microsoft Confirms Holiday Release For Windows 7


By Chris Scott Barr

Have you checked out the Windows 7 RC yet? If you’re the early-adopter type, I’d definitely recommend it. I just wiped off Vista from my main PC  this past weekend and am typing this up on Windows 7 as we speak. So far, it’s been great, with no hiccups to speak of yet. Installation was quick and painless, without the need to even run off and download any drivers whatsoever.

As for the official release of Microsoft’s latest OS, we’ve heard rumors that point to October 23rd. Now a statement from Redmond has at the very least confirmed that it will indeed be out in time for the “holiday shopping season.” That being said, I still think it is very reasonable to think that October 23rd will in fact be the official date. We’ll just have to wait and see.
