Microsoft's top Windows executive said that the company will release its Windows 8 Release Preview somewhere in the first week of June. Release Preview which will be closest yet to the final version is contemplated  to have a lot of changes in it as compared to the Consumer preview.

Stephen Sinofsky, President of the Windows and windows Live division, announced the timing Tuesday at a developers event in Tokyo, according to a Twitter message by the company.

The Redmond Giant have already released two preview editions of windows 8 before this- the Developer preview released in September last year, while the Consumer Preview  released at the end of the February. Fascinatingly, more than 100,000 changes have been made to Windows 8 since the Developer preview.


In March, Cherry said that Microsoft would deliver a release candidate three months after the Consumer Preview, with a "release to manufacturing," or the RTM, edition three months after the RC. So far, Microsoft has also detailed the SKU's  of the Windows 8 that will hit the market , Windows 8, Windows 8 Pro, and Windows RT(for ARM), as well as a host of respective features they will provide. The first two meant for x86 systems will be available in 32-bit and 64-bit versions.


Windows 8 has been called the "most significant redesign" of the operating system since Windows 95, and a lot of hopes are riding on the platform, a much bigger gamble than just a way into the tablet, and in the future, with Windows Phone 8, markets. 


The new operating system is due to be released this October-November, and Microsoft's already at work in the Windows Store, a marketplace for both Metro-style apps, and regular Windows software.
