RTM Vs. Release Preview. Windows 8?

  1. #11


    The release preview expires in January, unless users have contrived a hack for it, so, whilst the comparison with the "Released to manufacturers" (RTM) edition is interesting, it has no real meaning. But I guess both of the OP's questions have been answered by Brinks attachment.

    Which would you rather have? The one with partially finished drywall, no carpeting, and partially finished plumbing? Or the final thing?

    I'd prefer the previous building that was demolished to construct this one.....

    The trial of the RTM version is Windows 8 Enterprise. You can use it for 90 days. It's the same thing they did when Windows 7 was released.

    The OTHER version is Windows 8 Pro, it's kind of like Enterprise, except labeling and you buy a retail key and not a volume key and a few other things.
