    Although win8beta made an accurate report about the WDP release, I still have doubts about this "beta release", just cross our fingers.

    But thinking back, MS wants to beat Apple to the ground, what could be better if they let everybody playing with a "Windows Beta Slate" to wait for the RTM, and forget about the ipad? :tooth:

    +1 FaiKee... It's a very good strategy from M$, and that's why they had released this WDP 8102 for everybody. They have already generated tremendous interest and publicity for this Windows 8 operating system.

    I don't think it will be very accurate, just a reference.

    Before WDP released MS changed their blogs for several times.

    The end off september was the date of compiling the beta or hand out the beta? That would be soon, but no it's delayed. (WDP 13.09. - Beta 30.09. a little bit to quick)
    Since when is MSFT working on Beta?
    Did they have also a new date for Beta?

    But if it was supposed to follow WDP so quickly, then basically its just WDP with some quirks ironed out? :confused: This is what we have been waiting for? :confused:

    Win7 touch edition.

    Probably Developer Preview couldn't be updated to Beta without a reinstallation right? :confused:

    What's the point in releasing the Beta so quickly after the WDP? They should process all the feedback they get from the DP, and make appropriate changes for the Beta. So, I seriously doubt a beta version will be released before December/January. Also, I don't think they want to make people go through the whole process of downloading and installing a new Windows 8 build once again just after 2 weeks.

    You can apply Updates that can change everything, even the Kernel.
    So we won't need to download any new build but we can apply a million of updates instead :p

    Feedback of the DP is pretty useless cause its a highly locked Build.
    Plus only ppl with a Connect invite can provide Bug Reports right now.

    they already have their plans for Windows 8 and roadmaps ... do not will listen too much feedback from the people, are their testers .. however, certainly will release the beta before the end of the year...

    I noticed features like hybrid boot and pdf reader and pwcreator are missing. So can all these be unlocked/added just via updates?
