    Windows 8 Beta Release imminent?

    Posted: 20 Aug 2011 08:29 PM PDT

    A plethora of rumors have been circulating regarding the release of Windows 8, as well as its RTM, pre-release, and beta counterparts. Windows8Center wrote about the possibility that Windows 8 beta release would take place at Microsoft’s BUILD Conference in September.

    On August 16th, Microsoft kicked off its new blog called "Building Windows 8" with its first entry, written by Steven Sinofsky, the president of the Windows Division. The blog’s intent is to "make sure that we have a reasonable degree of confidence in what we talk about, before we talk about it. Our top priority is the responsibility we feel to our customers and partners, to make sure we’re not stressing priorities, churning resource allocations, or causing strategic confusion among the tens of thousands of you who care deeply and have much invested in the evolution of Windows."

    The entry mainly talks about the blog itself, but it does give little hints about what is to come. "The next major event for Windows is our BUILD conference in September, where we will provide developers with more details about the full spectrum of tools and capabilities available to make the most of Windows 8." While it’s not exactly transparent about a beta, it’s clear that a lot more information about Windows 8 and its features will be presented in September.

    Thanks to the new blog, we can look forward to a bit more illumination on Windows 8 that’s reliable and not just a rumor.
