    It is important to note that the pre-release version is from November 2012 and will likely be drastically improved by the time of the official release on February 26th, 2013. As is the case, most users without a solid backup plan and need for production-level use of Windows 7, Windows Server, and Windows 8 will want to avoid the pre-release in production environments, especially with the timeline for a final release moving in so fast. As always, pre-release software is available "as-is" with no guarantee. This type of software bundle is generally released to the mass public for stability testing before the final, gold release, and may not be suitable for all computer users.

    The important part of this notice is that the final version will very likely be available on February 26th, and thus, many Windows customers will likely want to bypass the pre-release version entirely to avoid untimely difficulties if you can hold out just one more day. Thanks, once again, to kemical, for providing the above, aforementioned info.

    Best regards,
