Windows 8 goes RTM
Microsoft has confirmed that Windows 8 has been released to manufacturing.
The move means the development and testing of the software’s code has been completed.
Furthermore, RTM means the final product should be all set for its October 26th release date for consumers.
Microsoft noted that members of the Microsoft Partner Network (MPN) and IT pros with TechNet subscriptions will get the OS on August 16th. Additionally, OEMs like Acer, Asus, Dell, Lenovo and Toshiba now have the OS.
Upgraders can get Windows 8 Pro for $39.99 and anyone who purchases a new Windows 7 PC between June and next January will get the OS for $15.
