Windows Microsoft has just announced that Windows 8 has gone gold - or, in Redmond parlance, RTM. "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." Anybody got a spare MSDN account?

But where I work we will be cancelling all of them.

Why? We work in enterprise and there is already hatred of Windows 8. We're going to stick with Win7/.NET 4 and then maybe the reps will listen to how Windows 8 causes us problems. They'll probably lose around $36k from us over the next 3 years.

So you MS fanboys defending this POS better buy a lot of surface tablets to make up for all the angry Windows developers who will be skipping this garbage. Probably should buy 10 copies of Angry Birds per tablet just to be safe. I bet if you guys all do that then it might equal enough tablets sales for 1 hour of iPad sales.
