    Hi guys, I wasn't able to find an answer for my question: at my MSDN subscribtion I got 10 keys for Windows 8 Consumer Preview build. But my subscribtion comes to the end in 3 weeks so I'd like to ask if anybody knows if I might be able to use those keys to activate RTM build, pls :) Thx in advance.

    No, cause the RTM Retail keys will be different than the ones you have got now. The keys you have now, are meant for the version of Windows 8 CP that you are running and nothing else.

    In addition to that your subscription has 2 months grace period if you are lucky enough you will get your hands on Windows 8 RTM and Office 2012. :)
