Windows 7 To Be Released October 22nd…. At Least That’s The Word On The Street [UPDATED]

It’s apparently official. The son of Vista Windows 7 will hit the streets on October 22nd. At least that’s what says. But other sites are reporting the same thing, so there must be something to it.

But here’s where things get interesting. Microsoft is going to offer a “technology guarantee:

The software maker also confirmed, without giving details, that it plans to offer some sort of “technology guarantee” giving those who buy Vista machines close to the Windows 7 launch a free or discounted copy of the new operating system. As with past similar programs, details on pricing will be up to individual computer makers, although Microsoft did say the upgrade program will apply to Vista Home Premium and higher-priced editions (meaning not Windows Vista Basic).

The tech guarantee program is not beginning immediately, but Microsoft did raise the possibility it will offer some sort of lower-cost upgrade to those who are already using Windows Vista.

Interesting. They must want the planet to forget about Vista as quickly as possible.

Hey Microsoft, how about some official confirmation?

UPDATE: Ok. Here’s some official confirmation.
