Microsoft Windows 8 Release to Manufacturing Phase will start April 2012

windows 8 rtm date sep 2011According to ZDNet’s Report, Microsoft’s Widows 8 personal computer operating system will enter to manufacturing phase in April 2012.
ZDNet’s a reliable source for Microsoft related news comes up with this update.
Last I heard, Microsoft’s goal with Windows 8 was to release to manufacturing (RTM) its next Windows release around Q2/Q3 2012, after two beta releases, plus various preview/RC drops. I’d also heard that the plan was to RTM Windows 8 for x86, Windows 8 for ARM/SoC (system on a chip) and Windows 8 Server all at the same time.
I’m now hearing there’s a different timetable for Windows 8. I’ve received new information from a trusted source that Microsoft is actually on track to release to manufacturing all Windows 8 versions by April 2012.
Claims are that Microsoft will be releasing beta 1 of it’s OS in September 2011 and further roadmap are one release candidate build followed by release to manufacturing.
I’ve also heard from my contact that Microsoft’s game plan is to deliver a beta build– not a pre-beta or preview — of Windows 8 around the time of the Build conference in mid-September. This allegedly will be the one and only Windows 8 beta, my contact said. In January 2012 or thereabouts, Microsoft will deliver a final Release Candidate (RC) test build of Windows 8, my source said. (I’m now thinking that January release is the one that leaked a while back from Dell.) And the next and final milestone after RC will be RTM.
Despite of leaks regarding windows 8, we are not clear that what features and services are included in the release. As the Sep 2012 is the release date for windows 8 before that many new leaks are on the ground regarding the features.
