September 29 when you mean release to market with RTM (not release to manufacturers). Release to manufacturers would be July 28.
I'm sure this is strictly RTM (Release To Manufacturing) so to avoid further confusion, instead of (Release To Market) let's stick to GA (General Availability) for that.

So, it looks like Release to Manufacturing.The RTM is a very clear date which will be set by Microsoft. On that day the final version of Windows 10 will be released so that the computer manufacturers can officially pre-install it on computers they will sell.
For me to win, it looks like it would have to be Release to Market, since I guessed September 4.
Everything's done at Release to Market.
OEMs have Windows 10 installed on their computers and can only sell them (with Win 10 installed) when Microsoft says, "Release it to the Market," which, BTW, is us. DVDs are pressed with Windows 10 and are in Retailers' inventory and can only be sold when Microsoft says, "Release it to the Market."
AFIK, Microsoft has never used the term "General Availability" when referring to an RTM product.
Be that as it may, we seem to be guessing on Release to Manufacturing, rather than Market in this thread.
Just trying to keep the confusion down and the thread on track...
