Windows 8 launch date confirmed
Software giant Microsoft has confirmed that Windows 8 is on track to be released to manufacturing by the first week of August and to be available by late October.
According to ZDnet, Tami Reller, Corporate Vice President of Windows, confirmed the date to partners attending Microsoft's worldwide partner conference in Toronto.
An October general availability date has been rumored for months and a late July RTM date for Windows 8 has been suggested by most of the software sages.
Reller told partners that Microsoft has sold 630 million Windows 7 licences to date, up from 600 million at the beginning of June.
The Windows team's BuildWindows8 account on Twitter also said that on 31 May, Microsoft execs said to expect Microsoft to enter the "final phases" of the RTM process "in about two months".
Our guess is that it might even be out a bit earlier than that.
