      I'm not sure why OEMs and everyone else gets the RTM early if it seemingly can't even be used until October 22.

      OEM's will have RTM August 8th

          Interesting, the latest build from Microsoft, which is the same build thas has been RTMd, has Internet Explorer in it. It isn't an E, and you can buy Windows 7 from outside of Europe and install it, hence, no damned EU restrictions. IE FTW... It's surprisingly fast...

            Its not exactly the same build, which is why 7600.16385. is stripped off too .rtm

              It's not petty. This is a forum for vBulletin owners, not for you to post your sneaky money-making affiliate links

                So that means I can get a brand-new PC with Windows 7 late August or early September, instead of waiting for October 22?

                  No, they get it August 8th..
                  It is up to them to determine how long they want to test it against hardware, develop drivers, discontinue, and or add hardware and software to their compatibility lists...
                  Currently I don't see them needing very many drivers if any, but they always like to have their own..

                  At that point they will start selling it installed on systems they build...

                  But chances are, yes you can get an OEM system before Retail box sale of October 22nd..
