Windows 8 release in 2012 hinted at by Microsoft Netherlands

There have been rumblings about the arrival of Windows 8 in 2012 as far back as late last year, when bloggers noticed some interesting slides during Microsoft PDC 2009. At the time, Microsoft's Steven Sinofsky was pretty quiet about the whole thing, but someone over at Microsoft Netherlands has been a little more loose-lipped.

The final paragraph of the post is where the juicy bit is hiding -- even if you don't read Dutch you can certainly see Windows 8. While the text translated somewhat awkwardly in Google Translate (and just about every other online translator we tried), and it rendered a somewhat odd-sounding English rendition, we were able to track down a Dutch-speaking human for assistance.

The result: "But it will take about two years before Windows 8 will be for sale."

Anyone else picture Ballmer shouting, "Who's the GOLD MASTER?!" while he holds that disk?

Thanks, Rahul!
