Windows 8 Release Candidate expected this summer

A Dutch blog has disclosed interesting information about the upcoming Windows 8 operating system. According to WinUnleaked, a Windows 8 Release Candidate will be released either in late May or in early June 2012.

However, the blog notes that the expected Release Candidate is still labeled HB1 in the ISO tag, which means that actual builds are still only Post-Beta. To make matters more legitimate pics of an actual installation have been added.

This news once again confirms the rumors that Windows 8 is almost done and will be released in the fall of 2012, possibly in October. Back in February 2012 Steven Sinofsky, President of Microsoft’s Windows division, announced that Windows 8’s development cycle would mimic that of Windows 7.

So a fully working and complete Windows 8 OS is truly very close to all of us.
