Microsoft product release date  insider leak Windows 8 release date.

For the upcoming version of Windows, new critical features are being worked on including cluster support and support for one way replication. “The core engine is also being reworked to provide dramatic performance improvements.

We will also soon be starting major improvements for Windows 8 where we will be including innovative features which will revolutionize file access in branch offices.” Microsoft typically does not publicize the release dates and even the names of products still under wraps.
The one confirmed product name is Windows 8.  All i can say Welcome to 8 and good bye to 7, haaa.

Microsoft has not yet announced:

  •  Windows 8 on July 1, 2011
  •  Windows Server 2012 on July 2, 2012
  •  Office 2012 on July 2, 2012
  •  SQL Server 2011 on July 1, 2011
  •  SharePoint Server 2013 on July 1, 2013
  •  Exchange 2013 on July 1, 2013

The Windows 8 RTM date appears to be a bit accelerated from Microsoft’s typical three-year interval between new operating system releases. However, some RTM dates in the chart are accurate at least for existing Microsoft products. For instance, Windows 7 had its RTM on July 22, 2009, which is one day off from the date listed.

“Windows 8 will be released around 2011 with Microsoft publicly promising a 2012 delivery target.”
