Is this the General Release (meaning the disks) or actual installation on newly bought computers?
Who said I couldn't have everything?

Leaked Best Buy memo offers Windows 7 details

"The memo also says that on June 26, Best Buy will start preselling upgrade versions of Windows 7 Home Premium for $49 and Windows 7 Professional for $99 via its Web site. It's not totally clear whether those are standard or promotional prices, although the memo says the pre-order program will run only for 16 days."

If this is true I think I'll be pre-ordering.

I cant wait for this to come out! However, you know that they usually end up delaying stuff so i think well be lucky if it comes out on the exact planned date

Swordie - it's the GA (general availability), which means that's when you can walk into your Best Buy, Staples, Office Depot, etc. and pick up a copy.
