Windows 7 RTM on MSDN, TechNet

I spent the day wandering around Paris yesterday, but somewhere in the middle of that Microsoft released Windows 7 RTM to both MSDN and TechNet as previously promised. Both services got the English versions of Windows 7 Home Basic, Starter, Home Premium, Professional, Enterprise, and Ultimate, all in both 32-bit and 64-bit variants, as well as product keys for each, the Windows Automated Installation Kit for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2, and the Windows Driver Kit for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2. There are also Language Packs for Multiple Languages and Chinese Traditional. I'm a bit surprised that the Windows Server 2008 R2 RTM isn't up as well. I'll ask about that.
