It's applicable when RTM (Release to Manufacturing) would be pointless / inaccurate.
Ah, thanks. And is there a difference between RTW and General Availability (GA)? With RTM, there obviously was -- the product had to be manufactured before it could be available.
If RTW means the Internet (which it sounds like it does, as opposed to some internal testing site), it's a ridiculous term.
P.S. I buy lots of software on CD. In the last year or two, I bought at least a Windows 7 Ultimate upgrade, Office 2007 Home & Student, Norton Internet Security/Utilities/Ghost and TaxCut in physical form.
