Downloading Vista's Nvidia Driver shows up as W7 Driver!

I just downloaded the Vista driver for my Nvidia 8500GT , and during install, Nvidia shows it as a "Windows 7 32-bit Driver"...

Did this happen now or was I sleeping all this time?

Confirmed, I too saw that and was a bit surprised, they have obviously included support for Windows 7 with that driver.
