Windows 8 RTM in April 2012 (Rumor)

Posted on Jun 27 2011 - 4:25pm by Bryan

So far, until today, we haven’t heard any news about a release date regarding Windows 8. All we have received lately was a new build leaked, 7989. Mary-Jo Foley, a very well known, and a friend of mine who is a Microsoft journalist has received information about Microsoft’s timeline with Windows 8. We know, that no project is ever released on time due to delays, and showstopper bugs and such.

According to, Windows 8 RTM is expected to occur in April 2012. We also are expected to see a beta land at BUILD 2011 ,September 13-16. IE 10 is expected to land here as well.

Of course, Microsoft will deliver an RC build before Windows 8 RTM. It will be pushing a 32-bit, 64-bit, and an ARM/SoC version of Windows 8 all at the same time.

Looks like Windows 8 will be available for back-to-school season next year! Are you excited? Let us know in the comments!

  • We can only hope that they do not start artificially make older
    products even more older… As long as programs run in windows Vista,
    win7, win8, win9 etc. it’s not problem how many os MS will release.
    Everytime they bring something that makes older one obsolete (read XP to
    Vista) in some sentence it gets more serious.
    You don’t need the newest os for anything, if every progam you use,
    works in the one you own at this moment…
    And yeah, the MS do it for the money, what else? They are busines
    company from the bone to the skin…
