    Like the Disney song says...."It's a Small, Small world".

    Before New Egg or Amazon even get their copies of Windows 10, it will be available for a lot less, elsewhere. Eh?

    Me thinks some folks have tunnel vision, when it comes to acquiring things like OS's.

    I have to ask the question . . . Will August 31 be Microsoft's official RTM date, or will it be the date Newegg and other retailers will be able to start selling Windows 10?

    RTM - We've been over this before and I think I caused it, but we now know for certain that RTM means "Release to Manufacturing/Manufacturers (I'm still not entirely clear on which). Either way, the disks have to be pressed (burned in our lingo) and shipped to the various OEMs and retailers.

    I think "pressing and/or burning" will soon become a misnomer, because of what can be done online in today's market. That said, however, do the various OEMs have their own pressing equipment? I would say, "Probably so." Will the retailers have the same? To that I would say, "Maybe." Because you have retailers like Newegg (possible pressing equipment), Amazon.com (probably not).

    As we all know, the above is mostly pure supposition on my part. What do you think?

    The OEM like Dell, HP etc, buy licenses from Microsoft, they may get some DVD's from Microsoft, more likely just ISO images. They will (or will have) disks made for them with their custom images and OEM logo's on them. You'll only get those if you ask for them and or pay extra to get them with a PC. Buy a business class PC and you'll likely get install media with it, but consumer purchases almost always come with no included media. You've expected to make a recovery disk set on your own.
    I'm pretty sure retailers like Newegg buy their Windows install media pre boxed from Microsoft. They don't make any disks themselves.

    RTM is when it is ready and then MS can start pressing the DVD's for retail sale and the OEM can start adding their drivers and start loading new PC's.

    GA is when the DVD's go on sale, retail downloads become available and new PC's can go on sale.

    8/31/2015 looks like the GA date.

    RTM should be a Month or so earlier.

    There may not be a full retail version for Windows 10. MS has said that the Windows 10 License is per device and free updates for the life of that device. Looks like the OS is locked to that one device aka OEM.

Does anyone here believe that Windows 10 will be very likely to come out in June 2015 or is that wishful thinking? I want it now so badly but I would hate to have to wait until September or even July or August. Microsoft needs to speed things...
