    That’s nice…. but February covers a lot of days… 28 of them in fact. They couldn’t narrow it down any further than that????

      They are saying late February. My guess would be mid February if they wanted to under promise and over deliver.

    Sorry February this year is 29 days so it will be even longer. Don’t forget London, Olympics leap year.

    No information on how they will do the beta? I’m hoping for a discounted tablet for sale to test it on.

     I am looking forward to that release. I wish I could have it now. It’s so nicer
    than previous releases of windows.
