Drat! I was just going to buy a copy.

As of October 30, 2013, Microsoft ceased selling boxed copies of Windows 7 at retail.Microsoft Ends Retail Sales of Windows 7 [zdnet.com]
This October 30 cut-off date doesn't mean that OEMs or retailers are no longer selling PCs with Windows 7 preloaded. I can verify after a trip earlier this week to the Datavision computer store in New York (as part of my ongoing hunt for a new Windows PC) that there are plenty of Windows 7 PCs still for sale. OEMs can continue to sell PCs preloaded with Windows 7 until October 30, 2014.

Will we see a black market for boxed copies of Windows 7?

Microsoft: We goofed on that Windows 7 end-of-sales date

Last week, Microsoft made it public that it planned to stop allowing its PC partners to sell machines with Windows 7 preloaded as of October 30, 2014.

The Redmondians are now saying that date was posted in error. The new official word is that Microsoft still has yet to determine when the Windows 7 preload cut-off date will be.


Sounds like they're listening to the complaints again.
