Windows 8 Release Date Leaked to the Web, is It Real?

Paul Lilly

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:

  • WIndows 8: July 1, 2011
  • Windows Server 2012: July 2, 2012
  • Office 2012: July 2, 2012
  • SQL Server 2011: July 1, 2011
  • SharePoint Server 2013: July 1, 2013
  • Exchange 2013: July 1, 2013
  • OCS 2010: December 1, 2010

These are all RTM (Release to Manufacturing) dates, and if they're legit, it means Microsoft plans to pull-forward the Windows 8 RTM date from what would typically be a three-year interval between OSes.

Color us skeptical.
