Can't wait to get your hands on the final release of Windows 8? Yeah, I can wait, too. Just kidding. But really, the release date for Windows 8 has been confirmed: October 26th. With the release, remember, will come the final changed desktop theme, all features for Metro, and probably a whole host of new computers and tablets featuring Windows 8. Most excitably for tablet enthusiasts is the release of the Surface. Microsoft never specifically stated it will be released with Windows 8, but they said it will be in the general time of the Windows 8 release. I can't wait for reviews to pop up all over the web, as I'm really interested to see how Windows 8 works out as a tablet UI. I've always thought it would be great, but you never know until you try it.
