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?

You forgot the most important for some Windows developers.

Focus again on C++ at the same level as .NET languages.

Starting to move away from Win32 to a proper OO API to the operating system, COM based.

Now only Metro and partially on the Desktop, maybe fully on the Desktop around Windows 9 or later SPs.

That is my wish anyway.

This way Microsoft is finally adding to Visual C++ capabilities offered by C++ Builder since 2003!
