    Isn't Bill Gates chairman of the board?

    I think the board will have approved this stuff.

    Folks, I'm steadily increasing my belief that the Windows 8 Preview is not a beta version. It's an advertisement and a poll. MS is getting people used to Metro and finding out what the objections are, but most of the 8 Preview OS works just fine.

    Hi,

    Metro going down the tubes?

    Would that be the poll or the advertisement?

    Cheers,

    There was Vista testing and 7 testing was part of both of them and Vista was pretty bad for a lot of systems had to upgrade lots of hardware and drivers were a problem with 7 as i recall, so with 8 I think they are trying to get all the bugs out before the final release down the road but till then we get to enjoy a free operating system to test enjoy, and if it works which it does for me without any issues then your good to go, if not its a test to see what is causing the issues like any other software. I like it and cannot wait to see it on a Windows Tablet. Might have to invest in a touch screen because I think that the way computing is going to be evolving in the future.

    Wishful thinking Vince. Make no mistake about it, this is the Beta version of Windows 8, it just has a fancy name. Microsoft have had a love hate relationship with the beta label for a long time and with so so many companies using the term - think Google - it's really diluted its meaning.

    This late in the development cycle - the RC is expected late May - is too late to make fundamental changes to the OS. However, the feature-set' is not locked, so we can expect 'some' changes.
