Windows 8 will arrive this October
Microsoft has announced that they will be releasing Windows 8 before the end of this year.
As well as home PCs, Windows 8 is designed to be a unified operation system for tablets and even mobile phones and Microsoft also confirmed that they will be releasing the RTM (release-to-manufacturing) build of their new OS this August.
This means that we will be seeing loads of devices equipped with Windows 8 including Microsoft's new tablet, the Surface in time for Christmas.
Windows 8 launches to retail this coming October alongside both versions of the new Microsoft Surface.
