Exec's slip-up reveals release date for new operating system.

Acer's UK managing director has revealed the day that Windows 7 systems are expected to begin shipping.

Bobby Watkins said that Acer will start offering systems sporting the new Microsoft operating system on 23 October, confirming earlier reports that Windows 7 would ship ahead of Microsoft's original target of early 2010.

Watkins said in an interview with gadget site Pocket Lint about an upcoming PC model that "23 October is the date the Windows 7 will be available", when explaining the company's update policy.
