It’s been a while since I blogged about another of my (not so) crazy Microsoft rumors. It’s also been a while since I’ve heard any kind of an update on Windows 8 timing. In that spirit — here’s the latest, plus the ground rules for those weighing how believable this information may or may not be.

As part of my job as a full-time Microsoft watcher, I get a lot of tips about Microsoft from customers, competitors, partners and even some Softies themselves. However, ever since I worked for PCWeek as a reporter close to 20 years ago, I had it drilled into my head that until I could get three independent sources — none of whom was repeating something s/he heard in an echo chamber — to corroborate a tip, I couldn’t run it as a story.

These days, I see lots of single-sourced tips being posted by bloggers and journalists.

I just posted the Windows 8 release date that was posted on Chris Green’s MSDN blog. Not on that, he also posted the Office 2012 release date. Office 2012 is also known as Office 15.

Microsoft Office 2012 RTM is set to release exactly an year after Windows 8 RTM. How true is this news? Only time will tell. You never know when Microsoft might change its mind when to release a product.

Microsoft Office 2012 RTM Release Date

RTM: Monday, July 2, 2012.
Mainstream Support: Monday, July 2, 2012 – Friday, June 30, 2017
