So, who currently has these volume licence keys if it hasn't even been released?

(not with the intent to get one, I really want to know as several people claim to have used volume keys on other forums, but why on earth do they even have access to them?!)

I think MS could have plans in store for more meaningful updates going forward. They're going to talk about this specifically at the upcoming BUILD conference. This tells me that we're going to see more than just bug fixing service packs and that maybe newer icons are on the way, just not there from the start.

Updating Windows more frequently is actually not a bad idea. I do not know if Microsoft wants to wait 3 years for the next release. Maybe they go the Apple route (which isn't a bad thing in my opinion).

With them having it on tablets, I see them updating more frequently as seen with iOS. Hopefully at least!

Exactly, I think we can look to WP as the model maybe. a minor .1 or .5, however you want to think of it, update in 6-8 months with a major update basically ~2 years from Win8 RTM, so we could be talking about Win9 this time in 2014 I bet.

Well it's closer to 2 weeks then it is to one week at this point.

It's funny though how they stagger it, and VLSC has to wait till the 16th... why not just release it now for all of these membership/paid VL clients... it's silly honestly.

They just might, seeing how Windows 8 Enterprise-N edition has already leaked,
I think if Windows 8 Pro gets leaked then we have higher chance on MS releasing it early to its developer channels...

This is the first time in 20 years that I just don't care about about a new Windows release. 8(

Apparently, Microsoft didn't update it. Not surprising though.

It's probably been mentioned by now, but Windows Explorer is no more: it's now officially called the "File Explorer."

Well, it's a leaked RTM, I doubt the activation servers are up and running yet.
