Microsoft Announces Oct. 22 GA of Windows 7 and Server 2008 R2

Microsoft announced at Computex 2009 in Taipei that Windows 7 will be available for the holiday shopping season. I had been hoping that it would also be available for “back to school” but I was also pleasantly surprised to see Microsoft offering a “Windows 7 Upgrade Option Program” which I am assuming will get consumers who purchase a new PC before October 22 a free upgrade to 7. The Windows Team Blog post indicates that they will release more details on this program at a later time.   I am ecstatic to see this great operating system released. Press release from Microsoft here.
