Microsoft confirms Windows 8 will reach RTM stage in August, consumers will get it in October

While speaking during Microsoft's Worldwide Partner Conference keynote in Toronto, Corporate VP and CFO Tami Reller announced that Microsoft will release Windows 8 to manufacturers next month. 

Reller also confirmed the previous October ship target,  the timeframe that consumers can expect to pick up a Windows 8-equipped machine, or upgrade from a previous version of Windows.

I'm also guessing that retail discs are included in this ship time frame as well.
