From there, retail will arrive in late-October, which will give Microsoft the time they need to certify additional language packs and to give OEMs time to prepare Windows 8-based systems. Unfortunately, Microsoft haven't released plans for MSDN and TechNet.

 

Enterprise Software Assurance customers are being told they'll have access as early as August. Who is excited about Windows 8? I don't think we're going to see the surge of users that Vista to 7 saw, not in the short term, anyway. Smart devices running Windows 8 will have my money all over it.
