<p>In short, if you buy a PC at Best Buy starting on June 26th, you’re guaranteed a free copy of Windows 7 when it comes out on October 22nd. Not a bad deal! Unless you’re Best Buy and are hoping to sell some computers in the next three weeks, which no well-informed customers will do now.</p><br />

<p>Nice work, Best Buy. In any case, if you’re in the market for a new PC, it probably pays to wait until after the 26th if you don’t want to pay for Windows 7 in October. [<a href=Engadget]
