Facts About Microsofts Next Operating System | Should We Install Windows 8 Beta

Nobody knows what the next version of Windows will be called. It's even likely that Microsoft hasn't decided on a name yet. Do not assume that it will be Windows 8; it may be that, or it may be something else.

Okay, if it is Windows 8, When will Windows 8 Beta be available to download?
Again it is so silly to think as the answer will be just similar to the above. Nobody knows when the first beta version of the next version of Windows will be available. It's even likely that Microsoft doesn't know yet. They may have a plan for when they want it to be ready, but not everything in all plans happens when it's planned.

When a beta version does come out, the reason it will be a beta test version instead of a released version is that it will still have bugs in it, and Microsoft will be looking for beta test users to inform them of other bugs as they are found, In my view, unless you have a spare computer to install it on, and enjoy doing beta testing of software and reporting of bugs to Microsoft, installing such beta software is just looking for trouble.

Yes, you can install beta versions, but for almost everyone I strongly advise against doing that, and waiting for it to be released.

And finally, note that the reason it will be a beta version instead of a released version is that it will still have bugs in it, and Microsoft will be looking for beta test users to inform them of other bugs as they are found,

In my view, unless you have a spare computer to install it on, and enjoy doing beta testing of software and reporting of bugs to Microsoft, installing such beta software is just looking for trouble.

Yes, you can install the beta version when it comes out, but for almost everyone I strongly advise *against* doing that, and waiting for it to be released.
