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?

When can we start having articles about Windows 8 without at least half the comments being "Metro is crap and you are an idiot if you don't agree."?

Probably right around the time of Windows 9 ...which might be even quite possibly adored as the best ever, just the way Vista SE 'marketing trick of "lucky 7"' is now.
