Whats the inside word? Days weeks or months?

I'm afraid there is no inside word. You'll just have to wait for an official announcement. :(

Some updated word would be nice, the most we have to go is on the FAQ page for the open beta which still says:

How long will the LightWave v9 Open Beta last?
The LightWave v9 Open Beta will begin on February 14, 2006 and will last three to four weeks

Now, my wife might tell you that Im not the best with dates, but Im pretty sure that time is up - so what happened?

The beta has been extended, there is no official release date. Your right though the FAQs should be updated to say that!

Good to hear that kinks have been found and reported, aswell as acknowledged and rectified! If work is progressing as thourough as it seems, this beta period might be the best thing that ever happened LW. Perhaps NT should continually rely on a broader set of beta users like this!?

I recently inquired about converting my educational license to a commercial one (incidentally~ it's just the price of the upgrade, what a great deal!)

from Newtek customer service:

The upgrade special with Vue 5 and LW CAD will end as soon as version 9 ships at the end of April.

take it for what it's worth, i guess...
