Windows 8 to launch on October 26

Written by Fudzilla staff



Just in time for holiday shopping season


Windows 8 will roll out on October 26 this year, just in time for the holiday season and the 68th anniversary of the Battle of Leyte Gulf. Windows 7 launched in June 2009, so it turned three just a few weeks ago.

Windows 8 will be released to manufacturers in early August and it will ship on PCs at the end of October. Windows Server 2012 and Visual Studio 2012 will launch at about the same time. Upgrades from earlier Windows versions will cost $39.99 via download or $69.99 purchased in retail.

Although Windows 8 will bring several new features and a totally redesigned user interface, the big news is actually not the Windows 8 release, but rather Windows RT. The tablet-centric OS will be used on Microsoft’s Surface tablet and it will provide the Windows ecosystem with an unprecedented level of flexibility. The RT launch should coincide with the Windows 8 rollout.

The last piece of the puzzle is Windows Phone 8. The new phone OS will feature an entirely new kernel based on Windows rather than Windows CE. It will also launch by the end of the year.
