I find it hard it to believe this was a honest "whoops". But regardles; it appears the cat is out of the bag regarding the pending release of Windows 7.

Acer's UK Marketing Director (someone who would know better than to blow such a "secret") let it fly during an interview with tech gadget news site, Pocket Lint, that Windows 7 will be launched on October 23rd. It will be bundled onto Acer's new all-in-one PC that is optimized for Windows 7.

Microsoft will presumbably offer free upgrades to Windows 7 for anyone who buys a PC bundled with Vista (insert shiver) 30 days before the big launch.

My question: what will this mean for Fall PC sales?

Hopefully, good things.
