The Microsoft Windows 8 Consumer Preview, essentially Microsoft's beta edition, will arriving on February 29, 2012. This is great news for those that have been waiting for a newer consumer ready build. Microsoft released a developer build last year, but it wasn't ideal for consumer use or testing. Unless Microsoft is forced to make major changes based on user feedback or runs into an unforeseen issue it appears that Windows 8 final will be launching in Q4 2012.
