Microsoft announced today that both Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 have been released to manufacturing. This means that the master copies have been sent off to get duplicated and packaged a gazillion times over so we can buy them come Halloween-time.

What does this mean for us gamers? Well, not a whole lot from the looks of it. Some games may have compatibility issues of course and it may garner some very slight performance gains over your Vista build, but overall it comes down to personal preference. Windows 7 seems like it will be a lot more user friendly and that can make your in-between gaming sessions a lot more tolerable. What say you?
