    Hello, Dudes!

    What is the exact Final Release date of Windows 8? Which I mean to say will be without bugs and no more test will remain to do for it. In other words when Microsoft will give the DVDs in stores to sell.

    Next build number will be Service Pack 1, maybe one year from now. So RTM 9200 is the final build for this time.
