Microsoft was on the floor of CES 2012 yesterday with a copy of Windows 8 pre-beta 8175.

Microsoft are hard at work developing Windows 8 to make the Windows 8 Beta release date in late February.

As a result, not that much was shared during CES. A few tweaks here and there, a few charms. Basically we will have to wait for Canouna or the Beta. Whichever comes first.

Nothing that radical to report but check out this video from Tom Warren at the Verge.

    Dear Onuora,

    Having a closer look at your infographics it seems that Microsoft has release a promising Windows Program to the consumers. As I analyze it from the beginning Metro Interface till the last date of the Windows release, I’m sure it has everything that in needs for this moment, everything expanding following the increasing figures rules externaly. Windows Program usually derive as an improvements from the previous Windows Program  and become part of the stepping stones for the future releases, more on that it would be a true revolutionary if it changes the inner part of the systems. Yes it looks cool as displayed on the wall at CES 2012.
    I met a local vendor near my place, saying that my dell inspiron 8600 can still hold Windows 8, still I wonder? Windows Vista gave 2,0 and Windows 7 gave 1,0 on my Windows Experience Index and it always need to be refreshed. I’m using The Processor Intel Pentium 1400MHZ and an installed memory (RAM) 512 MB and a system type: 32-bit Operating System.  For any Windows XP planted on my laptop had performed a tremendous velocity on my dell inspiron 8600. Would it be possible for Windows 8? This is what I’ve learned so far Mr. Onuora. Thank you.
