Windows 8 Confirmed To Launch October 26th

Microsoft have confirmed on the Windows Team Blog that Windows 8 will officially launch on October 26th.

Steven Sinofsky announced at Microsoft’s annual sales meeting that customers will be able to get Windows 8 installed on newly purchased PCs or via the extremely competitive upgrade pricing revealed earlier this month.

There are no details on if this means the Surface Tablets will be available on that date too yet, and even if the Intel model is, Microsoft have previously said that the Surface RT version will ship up to 3 months after the launch of the Intel one.
