WZOR.net is the website where the leaks were usually announced first. They've had inside information about each build and when it would RTM.

Gold means that the code has been signed off, enterprise edition for businesses will be delivered around Sept 1.

Retail will still be Oct 22nd. The OS is basically done, the code has been approved for release. Businesses will get it first, retail customers like me and you will be able to purchase it on the Oct 22 release. Yes, you have to wait.

This might help explain how software releases work -
