    Since Steve Sinofsky took over, the whole concept of how to test OS
    releases has changed. I doubt you're going to see a true technical beta
    with Window 8.

    As to Wendy, given the sheer number of tech beta testers that were involved
    in the past, even if she were still on the Windows team, which she isn't,
    do you honestly think that she'd remember you specifically?

  • Yes I still have contact to her, unfortunately he has not any more to do with the tests.
    And can give no information about technical betas.

  • I don't see how they're not going to do a private beta. Because that would give them a more manageable feedback group than a public beta (20k-50k testers vs >500k).

    This is because the beta will start later.

    And more than a half beta-testers do not get invite to next beta.

    Public beta-testers were not a testers in fact because they could not seng bug reports.

  • Then what was the function of public beta testers if they could not send bug reports?

  • In past words "public preview" were used. I did not asked for a name changing reasons. ;)
