Here is the latest report that Microsoft’s Windows 8 will be available from 27th of October and this is confirmed. This announcement was made by Windows Head Sinofsky, who revealed it at Microsoft’s annual sales meeting today. Microsoft previously hinted that Windows 8 would be released in late October, but it’s good to finally have specifics.
According to Venture Beat, Current Windows users will be able to upgrade to Windows 8 for just $40 with a digital download, or $70 in a boxed update available in stores.
In a sign that Microsoft is aiming for clarity with Windows 8, it’s rumored that Microsoft is dropping the confusing “full retail” box version of the OS.
He also said the next generation OS will arrive at market on that Friday little more than three months from now, along with a number of PCs equipped with it.
No word yet on whether Surface will be one of them, but it’s certainly possible.
