sorry for my bad english ..

Final - Is the indicator that it is the final (gold) release.

RTM - Basically the same thing, it means Released To Manufacture.

7600 - There are several Build strings with that in it, but if it has RTM and Final in it, I'd assume it means the actual final version.

Windows 7 Premium 64 bit
 
 

A few question you may or may not be able to answer.

Anyone know about how long it might take for the people like me to get Windows 7? I bought a new computer that was on the list of free upgrade. I bought mine from gateway which redirected me to another company handling the distribution for Microsoft " Mentor Media". Are we, last on the list of people to recive a copy? I'm like a kid on Christmas morning, but I didn't get anything lol.

And also, I will be using Premium 64 bit when I get it. Does it use as much resources as the Vista counterpart? I have a AMD x64 dual core and 4 gig of memory. Was woundering what kind of toll the new 7 will take on my pc.

Windows 7 Retail
 
 

Please include this info in your faq. There has been alot of confusion, and I'm still confused about this issue.

1. Has there ever been rtm or retail release of W7 in which both 32 and 64 come on the same disc so that you can choose which one to install? Or are they always separate?

2. Is it true that rtm and retail/oem are exactly the same thing? I noticed that the retail for W7-64 Ultimate is over $100 more than the OEM. Are they really the same?

3. Editions of W7. Are the installer DVDs for each edition the same where you choose which edition to install (I guess according to serial #)? Or is the installer DVD specific for each particular edition of W7?

Thanks!
