Windows 8 has gotten a confirmed date for release from Microsoft. This landmark operating system will not only run on PCs, but tablets as well.

“October 26, 2012! That’s right!” wrote Brandon LeBlanc. “Just a few minutes ago, 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 26. 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’s on mine!”
