Anyone have any concrete info on whether Windows 8 will have an open beta?

    It seems to me one of the premier reasons Windows 7 had such a good adoption rate was the opportunity to test it out oneself and give feedback on the thing...I guess I'm hoping they'll do this with Windows 8, though I have no real info about it...Anyone hear anything substantial?

    I'm not sure that there will be concrete information yet. Doubt it will be known until Microsoft decides to let people know. There will be all sorts of rumors as always, just give it some time.
