Microsoft have just released their next major Windows 8 milestone, the Windows 8 Release Preview (build 8400) is now available for public download directly from Microsoft. It includes a bunch of new features over the previous Consumer Preview that was released in February this year. Following this release, Windows 8 is expected to hit RTM by August and general availability with Windows 8 PC's available in stores before the holiday season.

Windows Phone 8, which will be based on Windows 8 all the way down to its kernel, is also expected to launch alongside the new OS and its ARM counterpart Windows RT. The three will serve as the beginning of Microsoft's platform unification strategy to provide a seamless, synchronized user experience on the phone, tablet and PC.
