SOFTWARE FLOGGER Microsoft has announced that its "Release Preview" of Windows 8 is set to roll out in the first week of June.
Microsoft president Steven Sinofsky made the announcement during a Windows 8 Developer Days conference in Japan as well as via the Building Windows 8 Twitter account.
Details of the release preview are still few and far between, but it's supposed to be the final test version of the operating system (OS) before the final release later this year.
Last week Microsoft announced that Windows 8 will be available in four different versions, including Windows 8, Windows 8 Pro, Windows 8 Enterprise and Windows 8 RT, previously known as Windows on ARM. The company is remaining coy as to when the final version of the OS will be released, but an October launch is rumoured to be likely. µ
