Microsoft has announced that they have finished the product development of Windows 8 and it has now been moved to RTM (release to manufacturing), and Microsoft has started to deliver their new OS to their OEM manufacturing partners.
This means that manufacturers can start working on their new Windows 8 PCs and new Windows 8 Tablet devices, ready for the official launch of Windows 8 on the 26th of October.
Today, I am excited to announce that Windows 8 has been released to manufacturing (RTM)! This means we’ve completed the product development and testing of the product and have started handing off the final code to our OEM partners. They can now begin preparing new Windows 8 PCs and devices they’ll introduce starting with General Availability.
