i read that the beta version will 'expire' in august 09. does that mean we can then buy it, which means it's coming out then! or will we have to suffer a black screen until the official version is released? or maybe something else...any ideas anyone? p.s. i'm impressed with W7 [coming up from XP]
The MS rumour is that they would like to release 7 in time for (festive word omitted). Things have a habit of being pushed back, depending on how the BETA performs (must say, it;s better than the Vista BETA by a mile)
You will not, however be able to buy it in August, although you never know, Microsoft might extend the BETA testing period if they feel it's required.
