    Not too long to wait then?

    I was going to try the public beta but I've read that you cannot upgrade to the final build if you install that and would have to do a clean install of Windows.

    Much like the beta OS releases (And leaks.) and come to think of it I think the beta service pack releases had the same limitation. :)

    If this is coming from his tweet of "8/1 duh" I think it might have been a joke, but you never know

    So, the million dollar question, Any one knows when is the Windows for "Desktop and Workstations" being released? Tham this guys at MS are so dumb, WTF they don't see the difference betweens a tablet and a Desktop, Apple didn't fit Mac-OS in the iPad and iPhone, they create the IOS because it is a different device, duhh.

    This could be seen as a long debated question, but I have my hopes to high for the 8.1, but I was wrong, very wrong.

    Pretty close to a clean install your personal files will stay but you will have to reinstall all programs.That's a no go for me.
