Windows 7 to hit stores October 22nd

Greetings Readers!

Microsoft has announced on the Windows 7 Team Blog that Windows 7 will be in stores on October 22, 2009.  Windows 7 should hit RTM (release to manufacturing) sometime in the second have of July.  Half of the mystery still remains as we don’t know what Windows 7 will cost other than the fact that it will be more expensive than Vista.

Personally, I can’t wait for it to be released.  As I stated on episode #25 of the Global Geek News Podcast, I have loved nearly every minute I have spent with Windows 7 (BSOD aside).  I think it is by far the best OS that I have ever used and it is an amazing improvement over Vista.  If I had to pick a favorite feature, it would be the new taskbar.  Anyway, I hope time flies so I can replace the RC on my main computer with the retail version of Windows 7.
