Windows 8 public beta coming in February TNW is reporting today that sources have told them the public Windows 8 beta will be released in February.
The operating system has long been rumored to have a September 2012 release date, and the new beta date still leaves that month as a very viable option.

It is unclear what will be added in the beta, as a feature set has not been released, yet.

There has been a developer preview released, and some earlier versions of the OS were leaked, but each had noticeable features missing, including the email function.

Question: Why fix something that wasn't broke in the first place? While I understand that this UI is very radical and different, I don't see the practical use for it, just the cosmetics. It may be just me, but it's looks too much of a Windows 7 phone UIand the upcoming Metro UI on XBox to me.
