Has anyone heard rumours that Microsoft might be pulling a fast one, and releasing Windows 7 on the 7th of the 7th? I know it's been 'announced' for later in the year, but the date does make sense.

I'm sure I read this somewhere (reputable) but can't remember where. :o

The last I heard from someone who is has contacts at Microsoft NZ was that the "end of July" was still being floated, with little information about an actual date was available even to employees.

From what I Was reading, people who have MSDN or Technet Subscriptions, will have it available to download late July along with product keys --- No doubt if this is true, Technet will once again come to a crawl :D
