Windows 7 Coming By The End Of September?

Another sign that Microsoft (MSFT) doesn’t just have Windows 7 on the fast track — it’s on the autobahn.

PC makers in Taiwan are now telling Bloomberg: “According to current planning, [Windows 7] should be late September or early October.”

That’s good news for PC makers, a Sept-Oct timeframe gives Microsoft and computer makers a perfect window to pitch snazzy new Windows 7 PCs in time for the 2009 holiday season (while possibly missing a back-to-school PC buy for the 2009-10 academic year.)

But the open question remains: Will corporate users, who overwhelmingly snubbed Vista and stuck it out with XP, buy Windows 7 licenses?
