Windows 8 RC will launch June 1

Neowin reports that well-known Windows insider "Canouna" has tweeted the intended launch date for the official Release Preview (i.e. Release Candidate) of Windows 8. According to the source, the Windows 8 RC will be available on June 1. This latest morsel of information helps confirm earlier rumors that a preview version would be available during the first week of June.


The Windows 8 Release Preview is nearly here and if the latest information is correct, June 1st is the day to mark your calendar. The information comes from Canouna who posted the Tweet and is well known within the Windows community for leaking images from the latest builds that are not publically available.

While Neowin cannot confirm the information, Canouna does have a solid track record for providing insider Windows 8 information and stated that his friends in Redmond confirmed the date too. The release date is a Friday, which does raise some concern but at the same time Microsoft does not provide official support for the platform, so it most likely won’t force anyone to work over the weekend to make sure the launch goes smoothly.

We have previously reported that the Windows 8 build 8400 would be the Release Preview build number and images from the build have been leaking left and right. June 1st is a little over a week away which means we do not have to wait much longer to get our hands on Microsoft’s latest public build of Windows 8.

A retail launch date for Windows 8 has not been announced but it is widely believed that the final product will ship in October. If we are using Windows 7 as a baseline, we should see a Windows 8 RTM in July.

After seeing the consumer preview, I'm actually disappointed that Microsoft feel they can go ahead and release this travesty of an Operating System. It clearly not meant for the desktop market, not in it's current form anyway.

What about the Reset Windows 8 feature?

This will show you how to use a new feature in Windows 8 to Reset your PC to completely start over back to default to remove all personal data, apps, and settings from the PC, and reinstall Windows. This is like doing a factory restore/recovery on a purchased computer or clean install, but a little faster.

Resetting your Windows 8 PC works like this:

* The PC boots into the Windows Recovery Environment (Windows RE).
* Windows RE erases and formats the hard drive partitions on which Windows and personal data reside.
* Windows RE installs a fresh copy of Windows.
* The PC restarts into the newly installed copy of Windows.

Also the Refresh Windows 8 feature?

This will show you how to use a new feature in Windows 8 to Refresh your PC to keep all personal data, Metro style apps, and important settings from the PC, and reinstall Windows.

This Refresh feature is something close to like what doing a repair install in Windows 7 and Vista was for, but made a lot easier, faster, and safer to do now in Windows 8.

Refreshing your PC goes like this:

* The PC boots into Windows RE.
* Windows RE scans the hard drive for your data, settings, and apps, and puts them aside (on the same drive).
* Windows RE installs a fresh copy of Windows.
* Windows RE restores the data, settings, and apps it has set aside into the newly installed copy of Windows.
* The PC restarts into the newly installed copy of Windows.
