A leaked roadmap suggests that Microsoft’s upcoming operating system Windows 8 will be released to retail channels in August 2012. The roadmap, if legit, confirms a Windows 8 Beta release during next year’s CES 2012 in January. Microsoft will release the beta of the Windows Store and the online market customer preview at the same convention.

The release candidate and the beta of the online market will be revealed in April 2012 during the Mix 2012 conference. Windows 8 RTM (release to manufacturing) during the gaming expo E3 2012, and the final version of Windows 8, the online market, Windows Phone 8 and the Xbox Store during August 2012.

If the roadmap is legit, we will see a release of Windows 8 in about ten months from now.

The roadmap interestingly enough does not stop there. It covers the years 2013 and 2014 as well. It may come as a surprise to many that Microsoft may have the intention to ship Windows 8, the successor of Windows 8, two years after the Windows 8 release.

The roadmap suggests a November 2014 release for Windows 9. In 2013 we will see the release of Internet Explorer 11 during Mix 2013 and the Xbox loop and Windows 9 Developer Preview releases during Build 2013.

The CES in 2014 will see the release of the Windows 9 Beta, Mix 2014 the Windows 9 Release Candidate, the Build 2014 conference the Windows 9 RTM and Windows 9 Mobile RTM, and November 2014 finally the release of Windows 9, Windows 9 Mobile and the Kinect HP2.

The information are not confirmed and it is likely that we won’t see an official confirmation or response. What’s your take on the roadmap? Will Microsoft release Windows 9 only two years after Windows 8?


My question is where did MS Nerd get this roadmap. I am thinking it is fake but it could may be real.

Somehow I doubt that some random roadmap posted on some random person's tumblr is all too reliable.

This is not reliable as there are no sources quoted which are reliable I will take this as rumors. As far as I know Windows 8 will be hitting rtm in Summer of 2012. However Windows 9 stuff is too damn far off since MS is just getting started with it.

2015 seems more reasonable going with that ~3 year development period.
