Any time you buy, do it whole hog with no regrets... you'll be using it 5-7 years! Topic is sliding a bit. I posted Register's "August" date, but I think...and this is based on my own tests of the Beta and RC versions, Win7 is ready for an October rollout. The real question is whether the OEMs and driver writers will be ready at the same time. Failure to cover at least 75% of available hardware could result in a "oh no! another vista!" backlash. Somehow, this time around, I don't think MS will make that mistake.
