If you have the RTM via MSDN or TechNet or something of that sort (which isn't possible yet), then no, as you get a key from being a subscriber anyway. Otherwise, yes.

Hi all

Presumably you get an OEM key like you used to -- when you purchase the OEM copy you'll either get a single key for the copy of Windows you've bought or you can apply for a "Multi License pack" where you'll get say up to 10 keys depending on the volume licensing you've set up.

There aren't any "Individual" OEM copies available just yet but this will change soon I'm sure.
