But, but... :unsure:

Wikipedia states:

[emphasis mine]

"Microsoft announced that Windows 7, along with Windows Server 2008 R2, was released to manufacturing on July 22, 2009. Windows 7 RTM is build 7600.16385.090713-1255, which was compiled on July 13, 2009, and was declared the final RTM build after passing all Microsoft's tests internally."

Announced dates and actual dates are two different beasts apparently... Actual RTM date for Windows 7 was July 24, 2009, a Friday no less. :rolleyes:
