    Windows 8, Windows Server 2012, and Office 2012: Estimated RTM Dates Surface on an MSDN Blog
    January 27th, 2010 | Author: Stephen Chapman

    Windows 8

    *Thanks to Charon, a friend of mine from the blog, for sending me a note of this interesting find of his.

    Chris Green, a Microsoft employee who appears to use his MSDN blog here-and-there, posted a rather telling product support lifecycle update on December 2, 2009. In it, he details not only the public information found on Microsoft’s product support lifecycle site, but he boldly goes where no one has gone before by mentioning not only Windows 8, but Windows Server “2012″ (Windows 8 Server) and Office “2012″ (Office 15)… with dates. Now, before I post these dates, it’s important to note two caveats that this information comes with. First, from Chris’ blog, found in his sidebar:

    Big talk, to give exact dates. I'm loath to believe them.

    windows 8 release date leaked. is it real?

    It seems like just yesterday we were putting on our cardigans and hamming it up with complete strangers at our Windows 7 party, and that's because it kind of was. And with Redmond's latest OS barely three months old, there's already talk of Windows 8, including a release date that was supposedly leaked to the Web.

    According to news and rumor site Fudzilla, former Microsoft employee Chris Green drew up a chart detailing Microsoft's roadmap for future product releases. In it, he reveals the following release schedule:

    If you follow the links (Quite a lot of them!!) you will go around in circles. The original author's "Blog" page has been closed. And "Fudzilla" - say no more.

    Microsoft would be shooting themselves in the foot to mention a date, or release even an RC, so soon. Big companies are still budgetting to purchase 7.

    Again, I don't believe it. Too soon for such specifics.

    Despite the fact that the old saying goes, "Where there's smoke, there's fire", I agree, it is too soon for specifics.

    However, it does give us something to chat about whilst we await the arrival of Windows 8.

    I don't think they don't have a schedule at least.
    So I do think that it can be real, but who knows?

    When the beta comes out then start to believe the release dates.

    I say fake. Not only too soon, but that date itself is too soon.
