Today, Steven Sinofsky announced at Microsoft’s annual sales meeting that customers will be able to get Windows 8 – either as an upgrade or on a new PC – starting on October 26th!
Earlier this month, Microsoft announced at the Worldwide Partner Conference (WPC) that Windows 8 will RTM during the first week of August and GA in late October. Now, we all have a specific date to watch for those exciting new form factors to begin arriving with Windows 8! I know I can't wait to get mine! :-D
