We knew good and well
the next iteration of Windows would be generally available this fall
, but now we've a date to circle in our datebooks: October 22nd. Yep, the fourth Thursday in the tenth month of this year will mark the first date in which you -- the general consumer -- can purchase Win7, which gives you plenty of time to figure out which of the 94 variants
will suit you best. Have fun!
