Windows 7 RTM To Come In July 2009
According to Steve, "Microsoft will deliver Release To Manufacturing [RTM] code to its partners in the second half of July". Steve was prime with confidence, citing that "With that in mind, we're excited to say that there will be a Windows upgrade program available. Consumers can buy that new PC, whether for a student heading off to college or just because they need a new one, and know they'll get Windows 7 as part of the deal."
Long story short - like we previously announced, Back-To-School 2009 shopping spree will be marked with the launch of Windows 7. If you're tech-savvy, you should have no issues finding and running the Windows 7 RTM in just a few weeks from now. If you buy a PC starting from August 1, 2009, you should be covered by Microsoft's Windows 7 Upgrade program and have a coupon that will grant you a free upgrade to the appropriate version of Windows 7 once the OS hits the stores on October 22, 2009. We would say that buying a PC before Windows 7 comes out is a better option, given the fact that you'll actually end up with two licenses for the OS: Vista and Windows 7.
