So the cat is out of the bag. Although Microsoft seemed to be planning to release Windows 7 eventually in January 2010, the computer manufacturer Acer now confirmed to Pocket-lint that they will pre-load Windows 7 on their machines from October 23, 2009.
Moreover Acer said customers who bought a computer 30 days prior October 23, 2009 will be eligible for a free upgrade to Windows 7.
“23rd October is the date the Windows 7 will be available. There is a 30 day upgrade time so that customers don’t wait to buy a new computer, so if you buy during that 30 day period, you’ll get a free upgrade to Windows 7”, Bobby Watkins, Acer’s UK MD told Pocket-lint.
