Nope.
Probably get it in a week or so. You have to remember how difficult it is to use a mailing list.

No Way!!
Only till 8 comes out, then we can start on the problems.
But this will end when 8 comes out.

there are many many reasons to complain, but politeness is always required.
The title of this same thread could offend Nt too.
Nt NEVER said March 22 was the day in wich 8 was out.

so, what infamy are u guys talking about??

Well I just hope the offers aren't extended for another few months.... I bought 7.5 in last year's "Summer Special" which was supposed to end in July (I think), but continued until now, and the weather tells me it ain't still summer!

Anyway, I'm just looking forward to it when it is released....

Stop all these moanings and let them work!

I do agree - however much we moan, it's not going to get v8 here any quicker. It's like expecting a parcel to be delivered to your home and keep looking out the window - the delivery truck isn't going to get there any sooner!

Bottom line : If you want to wait for v8, you're just gonna have to wait! :) :rolleyes:

Speaking as a software developer, it actually doesn't bother when users moan about delays in forum - it lets me know they are anxious for my product, which is always a good thing.

At the same time we should not expect daily reports from NT - that would take time away from coding/testing/marketing/everything else needed to release software.

Looking into my crystal ball of sofware development practices, I'd say we are very close to release - the general lack of comment from the development staff supports that theory. When you're late in development - past code freeze into "critical bug fix only" stage, predicting release date is in fact impossible. It could be today if nothing critical is found in the latest build. At the same time, a single critical bug may take a week or more to fix.

So I say moan if it makes you happy! Gives us something to do instead of wait by the mailbox! 'sides, its raining so I had to come in... :D
