Its official: Windows 8 launching on 26 October

 

Microsoft has announced in a blog post that its next-gen operating system tailor made for shifting from personal computers to smartphones and tablets will be available on 26 October.

Windows unit boss Steven Sinofsky announced at Microsoft’s annual sales meeting that customers will be able to get Windows 8 – whether in upgrade fashion or on a new PC – starting on October 26th. Earlier this month at the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference, Tami Reller told attendees Windows 8 would be available in October. But now everyone has a specific date to mark on their calendars.

It “is simply the biggest deal for this company in at least 17 years,” Microsoft chief Mr Steve Ballmer said last week, referring to the time since the launch of the game-changing Windows 95 operating system.
