August 13th, 2012 (Windows 8 Pro RTM - therefore so much for a lack of reliability).

Oh I have a question, How do you open up this window to view the install date instead of using Command Prompt.

Good god this has to be the longest I have had the same Windows Install for. Usually I had to re-install every 6 months o.o.


Windows 7 is so stable the only reason I reinstalled was because my primary drive failed. And that was the same time the Consumer preview came out so I jumped on the 8 train. But the notion of having to reinstall Windows yearly went out the door with Windows 7.
