We received a rumor about the Windows 8 Beta release date.
As a prominent blog that has covered Windows 8 from the very beginning, we tend to get a lot of rumors sent to this site every week.
As I’ve said before, I tend to ignore 99% of them as they can’t be verified or don’t seem credible in any way shape or form.
This one however seems to have a tinge of truth to it so I thought I would share it with you.
So, I got a communication from a source (in Microsoft) who has been right before on this site.
He was right about Windows 8 Kinect integration and he has been right about a couple of other executive changes that I chose not to publish.
Anyway, he is stating that the Windows 8 Beta will be released on Sunday the 26th of February 2012.
He says that this is the internal date floating around at Microsoft and is the target date that the executives are shooting for.
Sunday seems to be a curious time to release a Beta but you could argue that it would be great because you would have a ton of downloads from users at home.
This is a RUMOR – We cannot validate the truth of the story.
We’ll all obviously find out soon enough..
