Yes, it was reported shortly after the Windows 8 event at Mobile World Congress. Windows 8, supposedly, will have 9 different versions of Windows. In my opinion, this really doesn’t  make sense. Windows should just make one version of Windows and have other features or packages buy-able or upgrade-able into the system. Here are the rumor versions of Windows 8:

Windows 8 Enterprise Edition

Windows 8 Enterprise Evaluation Edition

Windows 8 Home Basic Edition

Windows 8 Home Premium Edition

Windows 8 ARM Edition

Windows 8 Professional Edition

Windows 8 Professional Plus Edition

Windows 8 Starter Edition

Windows 8 Ultimate Edition

Told you it was a big list. Look at Windows 8 Professional and Windows 8 Professional Plus. What could be the difference between those two versions. Also why does Microsoft still offer Windows 8 Starter? Really, when will Microsoft learn that less is more.

Please stay tuned for my full review and commentaries on the Windows 8 Consumers Preview. I will later make that article into a video showing the features in the Windows 8 Consumers Preview. I am using the Windows 8 Consumers Preview as my main operating system. I really like reporting my problems I encounter and feedback to Microsoft. I hope that they will fix all the bugs. I will also try to post and talk about the bugs in the Windows 8 Consumers Preview. Stay tuned for more Windows 8 news.

 

Guild Wars 2 is the most anticipated game to soon be released. ArenaNet has asked beta testers to be interested in the largest project of the company. The closed beta started in December of 2011. Since then, not many people could interact and take part in the early phases of testing of Guild Wars 2.

Guild Wars is a series of fantasy role-playing games in the world of Cantha. It is both a single-player role playing game and a MMORPG (massively multiplayer online role-playing game). It doesn’t have a monthly subscription.

If you would like to sign up for the beta test, it’s fairly simple. The link to the sign up website for Guild Wars 2 is below.

https://beta.guildwars2.com/

You will first need to download a small program that will test your system and specs and send them to ArenaNet. When the test is complete, you will be automatically sent to a page where you can submit your email address, age, guild name (optional) and submit to receive news and updates about the release.

If you’re one of the lucky people to be selected, you will receive an email invitation from ArenaNet with further instructions on how to continue.

There’s nothing to lose, try to be one of the lucky ones to get into the beta. Go ahead and try it.
