Microsoft confirms February 2012 release for Windows 8 beta Microsoft has confirmed the rumor today that its first public Windows 8 Beta will be released in February.
The company also added that the Developer Preview had been downloaded over 3 million times.

Original story:

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.

Again............unless you have a touchscreen, this P.O.S. OS will render itself pointless and relatively unwanted.

Just as IDC stated, "irrelevant"
