Finally went RTM, so the one that 'leaked' last week was a waste of a download and install for anybody who fell for it.

Should be available to OEM's, Volume Customers and Pirates within the next couple of days, if not already.

Read in a mag somewhere it's going for sale for 50? And Professional for 80.

Seems like a pretty good deal to be fair, compared to previous OS's from Microsoft...

Depends on the version, but all of the 7E editions are available with massive discount if you preorder.

Build 7600.16385 leaked out to the pirates days ago, shortly after the other 'RTM build' that was the wrong one. Hits TechNet on/by August 6th.

That build isn't the actual RTM, same build but it's not the final version.

That would piss me off every one of the 120 days.

I don't format anywhere near that often now anyway since I got rid of xp.

I can imagine there is some sort of annoying pop up every 30 seconds.

Just waiting for a valid release now, so far it's just a bunch of shit that lasts the 120days.
