    Windows 8 Betas were "too wide spread"


    Microsoft did such a good job on there betas, they tricked many of there consumers with the CP, and less on the RP, but it would only be fair if they offered the upgrade to RP.

    Yes BunnyJ, but didn't they "advertise" there betas so far that some downloaded without fully understanding. I know since I've read about others complaints about loosing Windows 7 (ON THE SAME PARTITION!) and it made me think.

    Thanks! It's always helpful to hear from you!
