    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..

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

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

    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

    Computers won't ship with Windows 7 until October 22. Manufactures need the few months to test drives for hardware etc so they can ship working machines with Windows 7 come mid October.

    That is not my DVD, I don't even use the Windows 7 DVD's I get because I have it downloaded from Connect, or Internally weeks before receiving it ..

    Also I don't know who took that pic, but I sure hope it was from a MSDN user, or he just violated his NDA..
