Microsoft has announced that Windows 8 is all set to be released in late October along with the Surface.

Tamil Relle, Corporate vice president of Windows, announced this news at the Microsoft’s worldwide partner conference in Toronto earlier today, according to a report by ZDNet.

Manufacturing of the software is scheduled to start from the first week of August, and business users will be getting early access to the final build.

The company demonstrated Windows 8 To Go, a feature which allows users to carry the OS an USB stick and use it on any PC.

Microsoft had announced back in June that the RT version of the Surface will be releasing on the same day as Windows 8, with the delux Windows 8 pro model following suit around 90 days later.
