Eh, thought I'd start this just to have it for future Search usage.FINALLY! We have a release date for the launch of Window 8!
Microsoft finally gives Windows users the Official: Windows 8 date for Late October It may not have an official date you can pin on the calendar, but Microsoft has finally revealed the month and week Windows 8 will go on sale.At the company's Worldwide Partner Conference in Toronto on Monday morning, corporate vice president of Windows Tami Reller announced that the new Windows 8 operating system would be released to manufacturing in less than a month - the first week of August, to be more precise.

The $39.99 upgrade price is quite intriguing... will probably get it as long as it wont give me trouble with any games.

It's definitely cheap but after using the consumer preview I'm not really chomping at the bit to get this. :/ I'm sure my next laptop will have it and I'll have to deal. Hopefully someone makes something that makes it act like Windows 7.

yeah what's the point of upgrading your desktop to it when it has netbooks and tablets in mind?Not buying when Windows 7 has treated me well the past few years.

Well, I'm still running XP but have access to W7 which I do like. I'd just want the latest as I rarely upgrade computers lol. So when I finally build my new one I'd like to have the latest OS running it.
