Today, Microsoft’s Windows Chief Marketing Officer and Chief Financial Officer Tami Reller confirmed that at the annual Worldwide Partner Conference in Toronto, Canada.

yes the release date for window8 is near to october end.....

I'm wondering if MS will offer a pre-release sale, like they did with Windows 7?

With a $40 price tag for Win 8 Pro, I would suspect not, but who knows. Perhaps a Family Value Pack. I need 2 copies, I suppose a third would not hurt.
