Windows 8 Consumer Preview Date Confirmed

Windows 8 Consumer Preview Date Confirmed

The general public won’t have to wait long to get its hands on Windows 8, as Microsoft has confirmed the date on which it will make a trial version of its newest operating system freely available to anyone who wants to download it and kick the tires.

Microsoft will hold an event in Barcelona, Spain, on Feb. 29 to formally launch Windows 8 Consumer Preview, according to an invitation the company sent to journalists Wednesday. The date and location coincide with the World Mobile Congress, an indication that Microsoft is serious about pushing Windows 8 as a mobile operating system for tablets, as well as for traditional desktops and laptops.

The preview will allow everyday consumers to download and use a pre-release (Microsoft has not officially dubbed this as beta software) version of Windows 8. The catch is that, because it’s pre-release code, the operating system likely will contain numerous bugs and features that aren’t completely finished.
