OEMs Pick Up Windows 7 RTM Code Today in Redmond
When we announced Windows 7 had RTMíd on Wednesday, I posted that OEMs would receive the RTM code within a few days. Well, itís been a few days! Earlier today, a handful of OEMs arrived in Redmond to pick up their RTM code. In the past when a Windows release reaches RTM, we have traditionally given some/selected OEMs the opportunity to come to Redmond and pick up the RTM code personally. I thought it would be neat to showcase these OEMs that came to campus today as the RTM code is handed off to them to begin preparing for General Availability (GA) on October 22, 2009!

OEM OS are jsut another reason to build your own PC. for my Dell laptop I never got rid of all junk untill I installed a fresh non-OEM version of XP.
they had disabled the microphone while playing sound, so the Karaoke didn't work and al other tweaks they make. Just leave W7 as is. Don't give us trial versions of software that are free and list them as benefits of buying your hardware.
