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?

I did manage to get back to the Metro menu. A few times in fact, but the virtual computer was so slow that I have no idea how I did it.

Speed aside... I like windows 8 a lot and use the release preview as my only OS both at home and at work. But I found it damned near unusable in in a vm – not for speed, but due to how much the screen corners matter.
If you have only used windows 8 in a vm, then you are justified in hating it.

I find it works fine in a VM, must be all my Quake 3 lan battles when I was 20 where I can control the mouse so well.

So it will be horrible for every one with 1+ monitors?
