When will Windows 8 be officially launched? When will the next version of the Microsoft Office suite hit the shelves? Well, we don’t know–but thanks to a leaked product roadmap we may have some idea.
Many users are already using Windows 8 in the form of the Windows 8 Consumer Preview. The official release of Windows 8 is widely speculated to be this fall, and the information from the leaked roadmap supports that timeline.
As for “Office 15”, if you were hoping to get it around the same time as Windows 8 you may be out of luck. The leaked roadmap hints at an early 2013 release. The good news, though, is that it appears the public beta of the next version of Microsoft Office will be available some time this summer.
Are you planning on moving to Windows 8? Will you buy a new system loaded with the next generation OS, or just upgrade Windows on your existing hardware?
What about “Office 15”? Do you intend to switch to the latest and greatest version of Office when it hits the street?
