Windows "Microsoft today announced the global availability of its popular Windows operating system, Windows 8. Beginning Friday, Oct. 26, consumers and businesses worldwide will be able to experience all that Windows 8 has to offer, including a beautiful new user interface and a wide range of applications with the grand opening of the Windows Store." I'm still not clear on what '12:01 AM local time' means, but if it means it goes on sale in every country on 12:01 AM, I'll be buying in a bit over an hour!

Um, Thom writes about OSes. I would hope he doesn't put blinders on and only report about free OSes. Unless proprietary OSes are sending him free versions of latest upgrades, he has to spend *a lot* of money on reporting all this to us. So, yes, he should be buying it as soon as it is on sale.
