Windows 8 will be available this coming October 26Following Microsoft’s confirmation last week at the Worldwide Partner Conference that its Windows 8 will be made available sometime in October this year, the Redmond-based tech titan  is now announcing its exact date of arrival. Over at Microsoft’s Windows Team Blog, Brandon LeBlanc is urging us to mark the date October 26 on our calendar since Windows 8 will be waiting for us on that day. For now, you’ll have ample time to decide whether or not to upgrade your current Windows laptop to the new OS for a price.

“October 26th, 2012! That’s right! Just a few minutes ago, Steven Sinofsky announced at Microsoft’s annual sales meeting that customers will be able to get Windows 8 – whether in upgrade fashion or on a new PC – starting on October 26th. Earlier this month at the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference, Tami Reller told attendees Windows 8 would be available in October. But now everyone has a specific date to mark on their calendars. It’s on mine!” LeBlanc wrote.
