    I changed my mind a bit:

    Q2/Q3 2011 - CTP (leakable)
    Q4 2011 / Q1 2012 - Public Beta

    Windows 8 Developer Preview


    7 months since last post and in the early days of Q4, are we wiser now? When do you think the Beta will be released?

    Would make a nice Christmas present, nothing wrong with an early present.

    I think it'll probably be Q1 2012. It's probably unlikely it'll be this year -- but who knows! I hope the beta comes out this year though.

    Judging by the fact that 'winver' in the Win8 Dev Preview says that the OS expires on the 12th of March 2012, I think the beta will come out then.
