Windows 8, Windows Server 2012 and Visual Studio 2012 go RTM

Windows 8, Windows Server 2012 and Visual Studio 2012 have been RTMed [“released to manufacturing” as Microsoft calls it].

No. You can’t go to the store yet. That is still set for October 26th.

What it means is that the final “bits” have been approved.

It also means that manufacturers [i.e. HP, Dell, Lenovo, …] can start to prepare images for their computers.

Those with current MSDN and [paid] TechNet Plus subscriptions will be able to download their copy on August 15th. Visual Studio 2012 should also be available then. The day after, Partner Network and those with enterprise Software Assurance can grab their copies.  Volume License customers without Software Assurance can purchase from September 1st.

Internet Explorer 10 for Windows 7 has also been released – unconfirmed. Windows Vista and Windows XP users are in extended support – no IE10.
