Um, you probably mean Windows Server 2008 R2... SQL Server 2008 R2 is still cooking.

"Randomly trolling" is correct. And MSDN customers will only get access to Windows Server R2 on Aug 14. Windows 7 will be available slightly earlier, on the date you mentioned.

Oops, sorry about that.  I guess I just got SQL on the brain.

Yeah, Windows 7 will be available on MSDN Aug 6, with Gold/Certified Partners available to get in in English through MPN starting Aug. 16.  And as you point out, Server 2008 R2 available beginning Aug 14.

Thanks for the catch!
