Windows 8 RP "freezing bug" reportedly fixed

When the Windows 8 Release Preview was first launched in late May, a number of users experienced a "freezing" issue with the operating system. Even Neowin readers have experienced this problem and opened a thread on our message boards to talk about it.

Recently, a Microsoft employee, identified on Twitter as "tripparks", the "Senior Software Development Lead in Test at Microsoft", responded to a Twitter question about the freezing problem and that we should "stay tuned". Now reports that the freezing build has now been corrected in internal builds of Windows 8, little surprise here as we would expect Microsoft to fix this bug before launching.

As we have reported before, Microsoft is currently working on the final "Release to Manufacture" (RTM) build of Windows 8. A new rumor claims that the RTM version will have the build number of 8500 and it will be completed sometime in mid-July; Windows 8 is still expected to go on sale to the general public sometime in October.
