Windows 8 is not yet in Beta. There are apprently some pre-beta version that have Leaked out onto the Internet, but I am pretty certain that it is not legal to use them.

Windows 8 is in milestone 3 phase. I think you have expect beta version by December 2011 and full product might be launched on October 2012.

The above date is based on my own calculation.

I am a Technet subscriber and have not yet seen Windows 8 Beta for trial yet.

If Windows 8 Beta is available for trial, it will be released to Technet and MSDN subscribers first before releasing the trial to the public for download. Some rumors on the Internet said that Windows 8 Beta will be available at around July 2011 for Technet and MSDN subscribers.

If you are insterested, subcribe for Technet and it is not that expensive.

Early versions of Windows 8 have been released to some ODMs and OEMs, but as mentioned above, it's not even in Beta yet.

Please keep in mind the version should only be installed on non productive system.   *The Microsoft Store is not availble at this time.
