Windows 8 release in 2012 hinted at by Microsoft Netherlands.  There have been rumblings about the arrival of Windows 8 in 2012 as far back as late last year, when bloggers noticed some interesting slides during Microsoft PDC 2009. At the time, Microsoft's Steven Sinofsky was pretty quiet about the whole thing, but someone over at Microsoft Netherlands has been a little more loose-lipped.

The final paragraph of the post is where the juicy bit is hiding -- even if you don't read Dutch you can certainly see Windows 8.
Maar het zal nog zo’n twee jaar duren voordat ‘Windows 8’ op de markt komt.It says: But it will take about 2 years before Windows 8 will hit the market.
