Default Windows 7 - Retail / OEM Availability Query

Any bidea when W7 (OEM or Retail) will be available to purchase from NCIX, DC etc etc?
New SSD will be at home when I get thier and would rather install W7 64 Bit then Vista 64 Bit and another install shortly thereafter...

Yup definitely wait. Windows 7 is definitely a keeper IMHO. Aside from a few very small program incompatibilities, I've loved it since I installed W7 64-bit RTM.
