    I also think build 8100 will be the build which will be shared.

    Might be. I'm still not so sure, though.
    someone says it would be the 8102.

    @canouna: Are the new features (Ribbons, Metro-Logon) still available? And must the new copy dialogues unlocked or are they also with an locked system here?

    Canouna, please tell me if the Windows Developer Preview will be available for public download, will it be x86 and x64 or just only one of this? I hope if it's only one of this, it to be x86, because my laptop doesn't support x64 :(

    Sorry to say, I highly doubt that if its only one of x86 or x64, that it would be x86.

    I think they are going to hand out either all three versions (ARM, 32bit and 64bit) or only the ARM version (because of the Samsung Slate)

    MS will 95% release x86 and x64 builds. The tablet will use a core i5.

    And what source do you have for that? It makes no sense to give i5 tablets when you just made Win8 ARM-compatible. If you want to attract developers, you have to show how to make use of ARM as a developer.

    Also when it does leak we will have plenty of time to use it as the screenshot above states if it is right it wont expire until August of next year! :biggrin:

    By year end you would be using a (almost) fully unlocked public beta, you won't like this win7 SP2 that couldn't be activated. :D
