i'll try and clear things up a bit. there are essentially two releases right now. one is the ninecat release, and the other is the swat release. i know for sure that the ninecat version is only build 3000, so it's OEM, and the swat version is also build 3000.
with that said, OEM is still ok for me. it is still a final release, and it has to be a little better than RC2 if it's gonna be shipped to OEM distros everywhere (dell, compaq, and pre-built systems).
so, download it, love it, whatever.
