    Ofcourse we know it's being tested, what's the new thing?

    The only post-Windows Developer Preview feature confirmed to be released with Windows 8 Beta is the improved Task Manager for large scale computers with many processors.

    i am more in awe of the 1TB of memory and 40GB of it being used then the 160 processing threads

    though the new look is a lot better (even for my core i7)

    Yes. For now. Sorry, I thought u wrote Is this only developer?

    U can test it too.
  11. You can download it and test it out. But it is a developer preview so don't expect it to work perfectly and/or use it as the main OS.
  12. Nokia to have Window 8 tablet out by June 2012.

    http://www.zdnet.com.au/windows-8-tablet-due-in-june-nokia-exec-339326354.htm

    So that means we will see Window 8 by then.

    If Nokia is going to make Window 8 phones, I am going to convert back from Android to Nokia.

    It hasn't been officially confirmed, but it seems logical that W8 will form the basis for the next version of Windows Phone as well.

    Looks to me like they're trying to aim it at the mobile market.
    Damned if I'll buy it! I have 3 copies of Win7-64 as it is.
