A quick search will reveal Fall 2012. More specifically, October 2012 seems to be the consensus. This is still only speculation, though.

Windows 8 have lot of new features which will be more faster and must have lot of advantages than previous version of windows... Lets wait for it...

roll on windows 9, 8 is like a phone os (have only had a three day look at it) then had to put win 7 back on so as to use it lol. i'm old i want it all to stay the same. why can't they just fix the one we have instead of keep putting out more half finished very expensive o/s's and touch screens are pretty expensive still

Start8, ViStart, Classic Shell, and many other programs still let you get the start menu because unlike the older hacks, they install a new one instead of trying to reuse MS's one (the hacks don't work anymore because MS removed their's).
