    1.RTM is the release to manufacture version. These are the versions that are available in stores.

    2.There is no such thing as trail version. You need to have a valid licence to use windows 8

    3.There are some bugs which are fixed in the corresponding update cycle.

    4.There are no demerits. This is similar to windows 7 but without start menu and some significant changes.

    If you really want to try windows 8 for free

    Download Windows 8 Enterprise Evaluation

    This can be used only for 90 days

    Yes RTM is the final version. RTM also asks for a product key before the installation and immediately checks and activates it as soon as the computer is connected to the net.
