No sense for me to check for alpha yet. 32-bits still claim my PC as their realm.
Come to the 64 bit side.....
Actually I was running XP64 years ago and when i went kicking and screaming to Win 7 I stayed 64 bit. I must admit, that Win 7 64 is probably the best version of Windows I have ever used.
Not gonna touch Win 8...but... I too must keep checking....
Not that i get out much but is there a 'kinda' list of eta on Alpha, Beta, release?
Alpha (Jan or Feb)
Beta (Spring 2015)
release (Nov 2015)
I am just plugging in guesses but that would be mine... (I hope)
