The title says it all, folks — Microsoft’s newest operating system will hit the masses starting on October 26th, nearly three years to the day after the launch of Windows 7.

Customers will be able to grab Win8 as an upgrade or in new, unmolested form on that date, and you can bet we’ll have a review out to coincide. Read the full story at Engadget.
