It’s official: Windows 7 will make its debut on October 22. Microsoft confirmed the late-October launch date with PC World, details of which leaked out earlier today.
Windows 7 development should finish up in July, at which time it will be released to PC manufacturers. The October 22 date will be a full retail rollout for the OS – although pricing has yet to be announced.
Microsoft will provide a “tech guarantee” for upgrading users, though its details are still to come.
