As an update to my previous post on this topic, Windows 8 will officially be Generally Available (GA) on October 26th. The announcement was made on Wednesday by Stephen Sinofsky at our annual sales meeting. What this means for you is that you will be able to buy Windows 8 at your local Microsoft Store or online, at your favorite local or online retailer, or get it installed on a new PC.
More details and the official blog post can be found here.
I’ve been running the Windows 8 Release Preview since shortly after its availability and its been an awesome experience on many fronts, so I encourage you to dive in as well. I’ll be posting more details on my experience with Windows 8 soon.
