Does anyone know if the RTM has leaked out anywhere yet?
No signs on torrents yet
keep an eye over wzor
Either a leak next week or next month.
Considering that MS has more or less given up on SP2 for win 7 and office 2010, this will be a welcome change.
Try installing office 2010 even with SP1 and then deal with installing close to 1 GB of updates.
I have a technet account and office 2013 rtm means
1. quicker install
2. lower install size (no updates)
3. lower hard disk usage (keeping updates)
If I remember correctly, there will be a pre-release available for Surface RT customers.
So the release of a special version of Office 2013 is supposed to coincide with the Surface and Windows 8 RT release (made available through Windows Update, interestingly enough.)
If that's true, I really hope someone will capture the network traffice so the rest of us can port the Surface Pro version to regular Windows 7 & 8. ;-)

Feedback icons in RTM? weired.
X-MEN agree with your suggestion (keep an eye on wzor) but this site has not been updated since last april and it seems that they have moved to SOFT-FORUM.WS. You need an invitation to register and enter such forum, most of the wzor users like me will be unable to enter such forum. Very sad for us, but it could be that i'm worng.
Surface Pro? That would be normal Office. The special edition is for Surface RT and is ARM edition (and potentially stripped down), not x86/x64.
We'll get the Office 2013 RTM for 7/8 sometime next month.
EDIT: I wonder how the licensing is going to work for Office 2013 ARM (or if we can make use of it). There is a KMS Client Key for ARM Win8/Office 2013 but I can't see how it would ever be used, since the ARM stuff is consumer and should be preactivated and pre-installed anyway.
You're right, I'm sorry -- I mixed things up.
Yep, I got confused and didn't connect the dots... that RT always means ARM and non-RT is regular W8 & Office. Now I know and I promise not to mix it up again.
Regarding Office 2013 RTM - I understand it's been RTM, but why release a beta (*) if there's already a code-freeze? Or did I fail to understand the term RTM? At least "back in the days" there used to be little difference between RTM and GA, but then again... these days software get's sold that wouldn't have even been released as beta back then.
