Microsoft Confirms Windows 8 Public Beta for February 2012

Website The Verge are saying that Microsoft have confirmed the first Windows 8 public beta is coming in February 2012.


This is what the Verge posted:

We wouldn’t be surprised if you missed it in all the Windows Store hubbub, but Microsoft also just confirmed that the public release of Windows 8 Beta will come in February of 2012. We’d previously heard competing rumors of a late January or late February launch, so it looks as though Microsoft is doing a good job of hitting its development goals for the new OS.

This actually surprises me – I would have thought the first public beta would have been announced at CES 2012 in January – this is certainly how it worked for Windows 7.

Still, its only early December 2011 and it can all change by then!

Personally I am looking forward to getting my hands on something more than just the developer preview. How about you?
