So I’m not a huge fan of keeping track of builds but I know a lot of you are.

Canouna (part man and part legend) is dutifully doing this for us.

Here is the latest Windows 8 builds list..

  • 8888.16384.win8_rtm.120724-1555 (RTM Candidate)
  • 9200.16384.win8_rtm.120725-1247 (RTM Candidate ~ Still Windows 8 build, not from WinMAIN branch so not Post-RTM / Windows 9)

There was some romantic speculation that Windows 8 would stop at 8888.16384.win8_rtm.120724-1555. Obviously with the 8888 symbolism, that would have been cool.

Canouna is indicating that the beat goes on.

Don’t forget, we start looking at Windows 9 the second Windows 8 goes to RTM.
