    Tried to unlock Windows 8 features on Windows 7, and..


    ...it failed, most miserably. Sad day for me. But, then again, between build 7600 and 7955, you'd expect there were a lot of "unseen" changes made in the system files that would prevent it from working. On a plus note, I discovered that it won't cripple your system to use the "new" files on it.. I guess I can just wait a month or so till Beta comes out, eh?

    We don't know the official date of launch the Beta version. I think Microsoft will post the official news for Beta this summer.
