    Curious - When does this version expire.


    Hi all

    Aanybody got any info as to when this version of W8 will expire -- I can't see anything when I start it up and I was never asked for an activation key.

    Cheers

    Doesn't need an activation key. The dev preview 8102 already has built-in activation for everyone.

    Hopefully the Beta version will be out before then.

    Windows 7 and Windows 8


    I am wondering when that day does come, what will happen. Would it be like this, when I try to start it up and would it be a black screen with words expired across it? I have 2 computers with the Windows 8 on it on a partition. I am planning to get beta when that comes out. Maybe on one of them, I am going to let it expire and see what happens on that day hahha.
