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?

Standard procedure- wait for Service Pack 1 if you want it to be usable.... Or Windows 9.

It wasn't true for Win7 why would it be true for Win8? Win7 was Vista SP2. Win8 looks like Vista SP3. Winxp took until SP2 to get good.
