Looking forward to this! I'm running RC on my main laptop, haven't chosen to install that on the 10 as I didn't want to reformat interesting to see the difference in performance....

I just ordered a spare Mini 9!

You can bet I'll be buying a copy to run on it when the time comes. It's been great!

Apparently Windows 7 Build 7600 is the same build that has gone RTM. So if you have that build, you already have the RTM. Enjoy. [source]

No, it is not the same 7600 as was leaked a couple of weeks ago. It was rebuilt one more time. The leaked one was 7600.16384, the final one is 7600.16385.

Where're you guys getting build 7600.16385? Are you using RC key to install it?

Build 7600.16385 won't activate with RC keys without a work around. You can rearm it for 120 days until the release. By the way this build is not the actual RTM. It's just the most recent leak in the RTM build string.
