    Windows 8 – the successor to the highly successful Windows 7 operating system – will release sometime in Autumn, 2012. The news comes from a Microsoft VP speaking at an event at Microsoft’s headquarters.

    Here’s what Dan’l Lewin, Vice President for Strategic and Emerging Business Development, had to say at the start up LAUNCH event at Microsoft’s Silicon Valley campus:

    “We will be in market … if you look at the crystal ball and just say what happened in the past is a reasonable indicator of what our forward looking timelines will be and just speculate, we’ve made the point about having a developer conference later this year, and then typically we enter a beta phase, and then in 12 months we’re in the market, so let’s make that assumption.”

    The developer conference Lewin mentioned is called BUILD and it takes place in September. It’s safe to say that the Windows 8 Beta will come out in September 2011.

    It will then, according to Lewin, take anywhere from six to ten months for the code to go Gold. Once development is complete, Windows 8 will reach the RTM (release to manufacturing) stage of the software development cycle. This is set to be sometime in Summer of 2012.

    Windows 8 will finally release to the general consumer sometime in Autumn 2012. This indicates a release date between 2012’s months of September and November. Keep in mind that this will be around three years after Windows 7’s release which was in October, 2009.
