I bet Microsoft isn't too happy with Acer at the moment. While talking to ZDnet about the release of Acer's new All-in-One PC's, Acer European President Massimo D'Angelo Let a big date slip. He was asked if they would ship with Windows 7, and replied "No, when it's in store it won't have Windows 7 pre-loaded. We won't be actually selling it a day before the 23rd October". To add to the snafu, Acer UK MD Bobby Watkins then told Pocket-lint: "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." Microsoft has not denied the date, so it may be when we see Windows 7.
