OS nearing its final stages before being signed off to production.
Microsoft is set to deploy a ‘release preview’ in the first week of June, as announced on the Building Windows 8 Twitter feed.
The Consumer Preview of Windows 8 came out back in February of this year, and a release preview is a near-complete version of the OS. Windows 8 has received both positive and negative views in the past few months, mostly over it’s new Metro interface. Still, the company is determined to make Windows 8 its flagship OS for both PCs and tablets, and is pushing forward to finalize the last few changes and bug fixes before the OS gears for shipping later this year.
