Well the final Windows 7 release is now upon us; in fact I received my full retail Windows 7 pre-order copies this morning which I’ll be looking to install as soon as possible, that is once I’ve managed to get some new computer parts ordered to actually build a new computer with. It’s been quite a ride if you’ve been following the tech news of this operating system; it’s had various potential versions (especially for EU customers) and browser options talked about, but thankfully those issues have now all been settled and we have a fairly straight-forward line up of potential versions of Windows 7 to buy.
Unlike previous new Windows operating systems, I’ve actually been using it since they first released the Windows 7 public beta (which was surprising stable and reliable from the start) and subsequently the Windows 7 RC which I’ve been using as my primary operating system since it was released back in May 2009.
Suffice to say, I am like many other people out there who have already had the pleasure of using Windows 7 am a fan of it already, it’s certainly a big improvement of what has essentially become the foundations laid in Vista.
The official launch date for Windows 7 is the 22nd October 2009, however perhaps you have already received your copies like we have with our pre-orders or perhaps you’re lucky enough to have been chosen to host a Windows 7 house party, so you’ll also have received your copy of Windows 7 Ultimate. Microsoft have certainly given customers more options in terms of how you can buy it this time around, not only could you have pre-ordered it early for a cheaper price, but you can also buy Windows 7 as a student for a cheap price or save some money when you’re wanting to purchase multiple copies by opting for the 3-license Windows 7 Family Pack!
If you haven’t already ordered your copy of Windows 7 yet and are unsure as to why you should upgrade to Microsoft’s latest operating system, then be sure to follow our extended Windows 7 review over the next week, appropriately split into 7 easy to digest parts!
