Below: Outdated Release News
Although it’s highly speculative when Windows 8 will be released, there are some roadmaps that give us some good details about the
Windows 8 release date.
The roadmap says that the next major release will be in 2012. That means the release date of Windows 8 is supposed to be 2012, because Windows 8 is the next upcoming major release.
Although there are many fake builds popping up, there are not even pre-alpha’s around and there won’t be any for a while.
What we know for sure is that Microsoft is already working on Windows 8 and they are also hiring new people to work on Windows 8.
Windows 7 has been completed, but a service pack will probably follow sooner or later, but what else would they be working on if it wasn’t Windows 8? Of course Microsoft has tons of projects, but they already have some teams working on Windows 8. With that tough competition (MAC) that is slowly but steadily growing they have to push out Windows 8 as soon as possible, that’s why I would say that it’s pretty safe to assume that Microsoft will indeed released Windows 8 in 2012.
