It’s been a long time coming, but it looks like we finally have a date for a “finished” version of Windows 8.

Manufacturers will be able to get their grubby little mitts on the latest version of Microsoft’s OS in August, with a public release set for October.

The dates were confirmed by Microsoft Corporate VP and CFO Tami Reller at the company’s Worldwide Partner Conference keynote in Toronto, Canada.

The October release date confirms what we’ve been expecting for some time now. What remains to be seen is how well the general public reacts to an OS that is designed to work across a range of devices.
