Microsoft has given *no* indication on a release date. Even "2011" is (a fairly safe) guess.

Agreed - there is NO release date given yet.  If you want to look at how Win7 progressed, that might give you an idea (when the beta/preview was released and when it was available in stores).  But even that's a guess.

WTF....
i know microsoft have done some strange things but doubt they will time travel to the past to release it.  Think you meant 2013 ;)

I blame the "new iPad" for said typo...  ;).  Not that I even own one, but I'm sure it is to blame somehow...
