Windows 8 RTM to the head…

Yup...here it is

Windows 8 has been released to manufacturing.  You can see the official blog post here, and more on RTM here.  It looks like distributors and VARs will be getting the OEM versions of these around August 16, with September 1 being the licensing release date to those without Software Assurance.

Exciting stuff.  Hopefully y’all were able to test the product like I have been.   Now it’s time to get this stuff and start testing it with your current setup.  If you’re using touchscreens, how about an operating system that is designed to work with them AND be a real OS?  The ARM version for tablets is going to be a killer, and for those of us saddled with using Android on our old HP Touchpads, this should be a godsend.

Enjoy your weekend!   I know I’ll be enjoying mine! 🙂
