We knew this was coming at some point and here they are.
The rumors have started to hit the web about the potential release date of Windows 8.
Some websites are reporting that there’s a leaked Microsoft road map out there revealing an August 2012 commercial launch schedule for Windows 8.
The sites are also saying that Windows 8 Beta will show up this January at CES 2012.
According to these reports:
The rumors even touch Windows 9 as well.
My take is that a lot of this is nonsense.
The only reasonable thing to take from this bag is that Windows 8 may launch next summer.
Summer makes sense because of all the tablet vendors making noises about launching tablets next fall.
Look out for more unsubstantiated rumors about the Windows 8 release date on the web.
It’s getting to that time of year. 🙂
