Just wanted to let all those who have wondering...saw an announcement this morning that 22 Oct 09 is the current expected release date, http://www.microsoft.com/windows/buy/offer...rder-email.aspx

MS is currently offering advance selling price of $49 for Windows 7 Home while XP contiunues to be available for about $88 from some retailers (for those who still don't have a copy of their XP operating system).

It's time to start thinking...

Yep, they are running a special. But only on "upgrades". Not for new installations. So if you intend to upgrade to 7
and ditch Vista, this is a heck of a bargain. Well, it is a heck of a lot "less expensive" than waiting till October.
I checked out Best Buy this morning, they will ship free.

Some manufacturers have already said they would upgrade to 7 for free if you buy a new computer with Vista now.
HP and Lenova have said they would. So I have read.
