    The Public Beta we are expecting in September will not be the First Beta of Windows 8. The MSDN and TechNet subscribers will get the Beta before that. Here is a quote of what I received in an email from MicroSoft:-
    According to that, I think MSDN and TechNet subscribers will get Beta 1 on July, and the Beta which we will get on September will be Beta 2.

    This doesn't mean anything honestly.
    Microsoft will probably distribute a Windows 8 Beta build on //build, and this build could be downloadable on MSDN/Technet and public beta starts in Nov/Dec.

    Windows 8 RTM (for OEMs.. which will leak) in Q3 2012, Devices and RTM for public in Q4 2012.. probably

    How does this say it'll be Beta 2 that we get? All it could mean is they get access to the Public Beta build a week or so before everyone else so the servers don't overload.

    No the 2 betas will be different. All bugs in Beta 1 which will be identified by MSDN and TechNet users will be fixed in Beta 2.
