    Not for a long time, the beta isn't even out yet.

    Windows 8 beta expires on 15/01/2013, I got the date from this video: Windows 8 build 8175 hands-on at CES 2012 - YouTube

    So we must have at least another beta after the february one before the RC.

    If that date is correct, you can figure November for the RTM.

    Looking at past releases, I'd say an RC build will be out probably sometime over the summer, Julyish...

    Rewatch that video, and stop it where you see that date. It is the EVALUATION version that will expire on that date, not the beta. The beta has yet to be released, so therefore they couldn't have a date as to when it will expire.
