    Microsoft has publicly stated there will be a February beta release. The official release date may not yet be set. Even if you see a date unless there is official confirmation from Microsoft we don't know what date that is. This statement is no different than what was said in September. Microsoft has stated it will use the same cadence as with Windows 7 - beta, rc, rtm, & retail release. Generally, there is 2 - 3 months between steps. So, February beta then April - May RC then July - August RTM and last October - November retail.
