According to multiple sources Windows 8 is currently being signed off as final with build number: 8888.16384.win8_rtm.120724-1555

This info should still be considered unconfirmed, but I will update this post if anything changes.

If you choose to discuss this topic, please don't off-topic or troll.

[b]*Update*[/b] The full version with build number will be - 6.2.8888.16384.win8_rtm.120724-1555 unless they find any last minute bugs, then it would go from 16384 to 16385

[b]*Update 2*[/b] Bug found in 8888.16384.win8_rtm.120724-1555 that has to do with WACOM pen hardware and metro icons. Expect RTM to be 8888.16385.win8_rtm.??????-???? now.

[b]*Update 3*[/b] Bug could be a driver issue with the WACOM hardware and not an OS bug.

[b]*Update 4*[/b] As suspected [color=#333333][font=tahoma, Geneva, sans-serif]9200.16384.win8_rtm.120725-1247 is in fact RTM[/font][/color]

16384 is exactly 16 kibi (16*1024). It could mean something?

So WZOR and all miscellaneous websites quoting RTM build no. have been proved wrong.

Now let's wait for the leak.

isn't 8 actually NT 6.2? When did they change it to 7?

Correct it would be 6.2.8888.16384.win8_rtm.120724-1555 not 7.0

Nope, RTM discussion isn't Beta anymore, it's final, so having it in the Beta forum would be incorrect.

Ironically, right after the post in which you said this was final.

Ironically the dicussion is about the final RTM build, not about the DP/CP/RP versions. RTM = Final, there is no other definition.

They're still keeping it 6.x just for drivers to install since they tend to check the major OS version before installing it seems. At least that was the thinking behind it, otherwise Win7 would have been 7.0 and so on.

The release to MSDN/Technet? or the final RTM build? I thought RTM->Technet/MSDN wasn't until first week of august. Looking forward to having to test all our software now against 8 </s>

Just the actual sign-off of the code... Technet/MSDN is coming after that.

And if your software works on Windows 7, it'll likely work fine on Windows 8, unless it's something crazy..

[/quote]

Well #1 You can't discuss "leaked" or "pirated" copies here. And #2 RTM is RTM, there isn't a different "final" version after RTM... RTM = Final.

There is no leaked RTM anyway or it would be all over the net, the latest version available in any form is 8400 the Release Preview
