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!

Microsoft today announced the global availability of its popular Windows operating system, Windows 8.

That's absurd. How can something just announced by popular? It can be popular in the future.

it sounds almost like it was edited it down from: "announced the latest version of its popular Windows operating system, Windows 8"

Same with the "First Annual"s type of events. It's only annual if it happens again next year.
