Microsoft Sets Date for Windows 7: October 22

Microsoft set the date for general public release of Windows 7 today – October 22, 2009. Microsoft will offer an upgrade plan for individuals purchasing computers before the release – details will be coming soon.

“Our milestone-to-milestone approach for Windows 7 is built on a great deal of feedback from customers and testers. This has been pivotal to the development of Windows 7. Since then, we’ve made enough progress to feel really good about announcing today that Windows 7 will be in stores beginning 22 October.”
– Brandon LeBlanc, Microsoft Windows 7 Team

Windows 7 looks good from the reviews I have read – here are key features:

Faster, more responsive performance
Improved taskbar and full-screen previews
Jump Lists
New ways to work with Windows
