Next week Microsoft may present an early build of its next generation operating system Windows 8 to the technical community, according to some rumors.
A Twitter account MSFTtm who previously was accurate reporting Windows 8 build details, says that at its Worldwide Partner Conference from July 11 through July 14, Microsoft will release a Community Technical Preview (CTP).
However, ZDNet's Mary Jo Foley, a reliable source for Microsoft events, says that a CTP build may arrive at the end of July, with a proper beta release arriving in September. Even if MSFTtm's conflicting report panned out, the CTP build wouldn't be intended for end users.
