Beta ends Aug1... Release Oct 22? What to do between?

So PLEASE correct me if I am wrong but...

Windows 7 Beta ends Aug 1st.
The Release date has been set for Oct 22nd. (already pre-ordered)

Whats the plan between the beta ending and the release of Windows 7 proper?

I really really really dont want to have to run an interm OS until I get the Win 7 Proper disk.

Build 7100 should be the RC. If you have a beta (Anything before 7100) then it will expire soon.
