So there has been a lot of speculation about Microsoft giving out a software preview of Windows 8 at or around the BUILD conference.
Most of the speculation has been about when will the demo software be released and what version will it be..
- Windows 8 Beta
- Windows 8 Community Technical Preview
- Windows 8 Developer Preview
Fair enough BUT one of the major issues that has gone overlooked so far is:
How do you test a touch interface without a tablet?
I don’t know about you guys but I have tons of computers that I can throw a demo version of Windows 8 on and test the Desktop version on. How oh how would I test a tablet version with a touch interface?
One way to fix this issue would be for Microsoft to give out demo tablets to BUILD participants so people can start testing the Windows 8 interface.
Other than that, not sure what other way you could do a developer preview or beta of Windows 8 and really have people thoroughly test it.
What do you guys think? Do you think Microsoft would give out Windows 8 tablets at BUILD?
