    Went round my friends house today and in his porch was a parcel been posted so he opened it and inside was a copy of Windows 7 Professional which he ordered from PC World and so he checked his emails and they said they would be posting it out on the 22nd and will take between 5-7 working days.Anyway has anyone else recived a copy of theres yet as im guessing royal mail might be trying to get all parcels out quick for the upcoming strikes.

    I found out today that I probably won't get mine until 26th-28th. This is the dates that Amazon are giving due to Postman Pat (or is that prat?) going on strike... So it looks like that if you ordered from pc world you've either got it already or it will arrive very soon. If like me you ordered from amazon then it looks like we are going to have to wait until next week. Obviously this is referring to UK users...

    Oh i wanted mine early..... well i waited months/years, well since vista, for windows 7- i can wait a few extra days
    I bet you mine come late it always does, I'm like the unluckiest person when receiving stuff trough the post
    cant wait because mines an "experiment" because I;m:
    1. upgrading from xp to windows 7 (through vista)
    2. upgrading from RC to windows rtm

    I will get mine in Jan 2010 from the free Samsung upgrade program, because i bought a new notebook just a month ago.

    Why Jan 2010 is beyond me, it makes my blood boil to think it will take this long and i find it laughable. They didnt tell me that when i ordered the notebook.
