Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 Release Dates

So it’s all official now, as Microsoft have confirmed 22nd October 2009 as the Release to Market date for both Windows 7 Client and Windows 7 Server (Windows Server 2008 R2).

If your thinking of a Vista deployment, I’d hold off. As if features like the new taskbar, touch support, new usability control features, Problem Steps Recorder, DirectAccess and more weren’t enough to tempt you.
