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.

*Update* 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

*Update 2* 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.

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

*Update 4* As suspected 9200.16384.win8_rtm.120725-1247 is in fact RTM

7.0.8888.16384.win8_rtm.120724-155

sub-build number looks the same. coincidence much?

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.

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..

So if you install a leaked RTM how do you get it to final, which in my case would be the upgrade version for my Acer W500?

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

      HI,

      Hope there are still some Surface2 (RT)  Win8 users around, as I still use mine almost daily besides my S3.

      The tablet ran the latest 04-2018 security update yesterday, but it messed up all my installed apps. Almost all of them refused to start and got stuck on the start/icon screen.
      It doesn't really matters if it's MS native apps or 3rd party ones.
      After some fiddling I got some of them to start again, by starting/closing them frequently, but are dog slow atm.

      While this was all happening, CPU and harddrive usage was over 60-70%%, as if Windows was still doing stuff. Even after multiple reboots/shutdowns.

      Also, the apps that refuse to start (for now) are apps that are not in the Store anymore. Coincidence?
      Does this sound familiar to someone, or did I just got a bad update experience?

      cheers!

      Hi All,
       
      I am trying to mend my parents in law's computer. It's a Lenovo with Windows 8. The computer is extremely slow - loading up the computer you need at least two attempts - the first attempt you get a blue screen. Using the PC I've encountered that the computer is extremely slow - mouse stops when you are moving it etc...
       
      I've run a disk cleanup and then also a virus run. These did not make a big difference.
       
      Does anyone have any further ideas on how to remedy this problem? Would prefer not to reboot the entire machine as I have lost the Office 2010 code.

      Do you use the Libraries feature introduced in Windows 7 and / or the Saved Search (otherwise known as Virtual Folder) feature introduced in Windows Vista? If so, do you have a preference for either feature?

      While I like both features I, as you probably expected, prefer the Saved Search feature. Both Libraries and Saved Searches consolidate content from multiple locations in a single view, and both allow users to customize their viewing experience based on the content displayed. Libraries, however, only allow users to display content based on folder locations (e.g., they cannot reference content based solely on dates, file attributes, et cetera), and users must manually add folders to a library before their content will appear.

      In contrast, Saved Searches can reference multiple locations simultaneously—or an individual folder(s) if that is what a user desires—based on a user's criteria such as specific names, dates, metadata, types, and words or phrases within files themselves. Also unlike Libraries, users can refine their Saved Search results with Boolean operators, natural language search (in Windows Vista and Windows 7), query composition, and / or the options offered by the column headers in File Explorer.

      I don't know what to do. It is driving me crazy. None of the solutions suggested have work. I turned off the adaptive brightness feature in the advanced settings and I also disabled the sensor in the msconfig and it still lower the brightness to almost not visible. I have a Sony Vaio that came with windows 8 and upgraded to 10. It does it with both versions.
