Interesting that it takes three months from RTM to shipment. Good timing for the holidays though.

I think the idea is that it lands on store shelves at the same time as PCs with it pre-installed do. Those (from manufacturers) have a 3 month lead time.

it’s official. In a post on the Windows Team Blog, Microsoft posted a picture of Steven Sinofsky speaking at the company’s annual sales meeting, where he announced that Windows 8 will be made available on October 26. New computers—in desktop, mobile, and tablet form factors—will be available on that date, as will upgrade editions of the OS, for users looking to update their current PCs.

Microsoft would seem to agree with you, and they are gambling big on it.

Yep, they already won me and four technical friends over. One of them is still happily running Windows 8 on his 1GB of RAM Netbook and he's been using it a lot.
