Windows 8 release date set

Post by

You may have seen or even had a chance to play with the new Windows 8 operating system and may have been wondering when the final version would hit the shelves. It now appears that Microsoft has set a release date for Windows 8, and that date is in October of this year. This would put it close to the holiday season where Microsoft could score some big sales from people waiting for their new Windows 8 PCs and tablets.

Microsoft may also be pushing for this release date before Apple gets too far ahead of the game with their domination of the tablet market and release of the iPad 3. The Windows 8 consumer preview came out last month and got some good exposure and reviews to get the Windows 8 buzz going so now Microsoft wants to seal the deal with the final release. There is even talk of the next version of Office to be coming out soon as well.
