    Use this thread to discuss RTM builds, leaks, screenshots etc.

    So far, there has been rumours that Windows 8 will be RTMed on July 12th.

    Steven Sinfosky quotes that the final build will be complete in 2 months time.

    Yes, Aero will be complete removed from the Desktop UI to match with the Metro design.

    I'm still amazed at the success MS had with preventing leaks... In the old Win9x days you'd see a new build every few days...

    On-topic, I've removed Win8 RP for now as it's still too much unlike the final product where the desktop 'experience' is concerned. Perhaps we will see an Aero-less build, but it looks like we will have to wait for RTM to try it out.

    If this is going to be RTM than i skip it.


    Even if i get windows 8 for free i will not use this for my desktop, i agree its very horrible for desktop.
    Also modify the gui after a installation on desktop with tools hacks and s**t to get the a simulair gui like windows 7 is a no go for me.

    Thanks microsoft, you stay and track.

    Windows 98 good, ME a fail, windows XP good, vista fail, Windows 7 good, yes Windows 8 FAIL and now far before it is released.

    I stay on windows 7.

    Microsoft Surface has more then one model. There will be Windows RT or Windows 8 Pro depending on the model you purchase. Here's a link to the spec sheet microsoft.com/global/surface/en/us/renderingassets/surfacespecsheet.pdf
