According to unofficial sources, the release date for Windows 8 has been set for October 2012, three years after the release of its predecessor, Windows 7.

The most recent officially released pre-release version is the Consumer Preview, which was released on February 29, 2012.

A version of Windows 8, called Windows RT, also adds support for the ARM processor architecture in addition to the previously supported x86 microprocessors from Intel and AMD. Continue reading
