The Windows 8 Beta Could Leak Early 2012

Reliable rumors are starting to surface about the early completion of Windows 8 beta that could be ready by the end of the year. You know the drill with any big releaseآ….the whole thing gets leaked to the Internet as soon as possible and half the world is running an unofficial beta release the first week. It’s often been speculated that big time leaks are orchestrated by the companies themselves for the feedback and publicity, but who would do such a thing? big grin

If this rumor bears out, and the beta is completed by the end of the year, Microsoft will have to attempt to keep a lid on the code for a huge stretch of time; I don’t think it will be able to.
