Move OEM to OEM[edit]

How about we move Original equipment manufacturer to OEM? Then all we need is a link to Office of Emergency Management, or if there is more, a link to OEM (disambiguation)]. —Tokek 05:36, 14 September 2005 (UTC)


Which OEM is the one that I keep hearing about in spam messages? None of the articles tells me this. - RealGrouchy 17:08, 16 December 2005 (UTC)

from Original equipment manufacturer
OEM, when used to describe software, is used to differentiate that version of the software which is bundled with other hardware or software from that same software package sold on its own as a retail package. The packaging and legal rights that come with the OEM versions of a software package generally differ from what is provided with the retail versions, though the functionality of the software tends to be the same.
perhaps we should include a mention of this on the disambiguation page though. Plugwash 17:59, 16 December 2005 (UTC)
