Acer says that Windows 7 will be available October 23, 2009

According to Pocket Lint, Acer has confirmed that Windows 7 will be available on October 23 on their new all-in-one Z5600 PC. Acer has also confirmed that any Vista based PC purchased 30 days prior will receive a free upgrade to Windows 7.

While we still don't have an official release date from Microsoft yet, and even though there has been an internal release date of January 30, 2010 set, rumors have been flying around saying that Windows 7 may be released sometime later this year.
With the public release of the release candidate right around the corner
, and development towards the RTM already on track, it's possible that Acer's release date could be true.

This week, Microsoft Senior Vice President Bill Veghte told Paul Thurrott that "a holiday release is accomplishable."

What do you think, Neowin? Could Acer's date signal a possible release date for Windows 7, or is it still to early to tell yet?
