Just because you order something on backorder doesn't mean you can't cancel it.
You have to have it postmarked 30 days after the order date... so since Fry's sends these with UPS SurePost from Memphis, TN... I would give it wait until about May 17th, and if nothing ships by then, cancel the order.
Typically, Fry's fulfills backordered software in a week or two. They usually get in new shipments towards the end of each week.
Ordered on 04/26 - status changed from Backordered to Processing today. CC was also charged.
