Microsoft announced this morning the official release date of their latest operating system - Windows 7. The team at Redmond will make it available to the world on October 22nd, just a day earlier than Acer leaked a few weeks ago.
Unlike its predecessor, 7 has been warmly welcomed by the vast majority of people who jumped on the release candidate and even the surprisingly stable beta.
While Windows 7 is more of an evolutionary upgrade from Vista, it's certainly a worthy one; it may just be what Microsoft needs to get the masses to willingfully upgrade their XP and even Vista computers.
Pricing should be in line with Vista and we'll probaby get hit by a slew of not-so-different versions.
