Rumor: Windows 8 Going RTM in 2012.2:10 PM - January 25, 2011 by Kevin Parrish - source: Geeksmack . A supposed leaked roadmap from Microsoft reveals a retail release of Windows 8 for January 2013. My QUESTION: Will this windows 8 be like windows 98se was just a glorified service pack for windows 98 or will it be a completly different system like xp is to 98se? My OPINION: is that it will be like 98se same system just different name to sell more software! What is your opinion!
