    I understand, Wolfgang, but you haven't seen it all, yet.

    I've been playing, and working, on computers since the mid-80's and I always get excited about what's new and want to learn it well enough to help others enjoy the new stuff as much as I do.

    I think it keeps me young as these whippersnappers, who are much younger than you or I, get a head start iff'n we don't keep up.

    With the Win 7 Betas I got every one I could beg, borrow, or "steal", Win 8 doesn't hold the same interest for me...YET.
    I installed the WDP, uninstalled it, re-installed it, and finally decided to leave it uninstalled. Once the public beta comes out I expect my interest will peak again.

    I have to admit, there was a certain "fun factor" when installing a Win 7 beta version that had been leaked half way around the world. The forbidden fruit always tastes best...

    Learning something before my grand kids do is a big beta plus.

    I understand what Mike is trying to say and I'm also very curious about what we'll see in the beta... a preview is just a preview, and maybe the beta is something completely diferent...
