Windows 7 in store by the holidays

Microsoft confirmed today that Windows 7 will be in stores by the holidays, in a news release the company released for the Tech Ed conference.

The announcement also included some comments from Bill Veghte’s keynote at the event. Veghte is the senior vice president of Windows Business: “With early RC testing and extensive partner feedback we’ve received, Windows 7 is tracking well for holiday availability.”

For months, rumors have swirled that Windows 7 would be released in time for the holiday season, even as the release candidate of the operating system was made available to the public.

The release candidate, the final testing version of Windows 7, is available here.
