Windows 7 Ultimate Signature Edition
 
 

i read somewhere on the site cant find it now that they would begin shipping out in a few days and the party packs would arrive no later than the 10th. considering these are world wide shipments and continential US shipments should arrive within 3 days of being mailed, i'd wager on people recieving copies as early as late next week.
