Given 8.1 is a public beta, not sure what the difference here is. Maybe you'll just have a different channel to submit feedback to.

Why the heck haven't i gotten this yet.  Does this let you download it early or no?  If not then there's not much point IMO

I guess it's like winpanel, no, no early download, but probably some kind of souvenir like a set of win8.1 disks(with keys).

 

Better luck in win9, christ. heia_org.gif

This is new, and a variant on the Install Fair that Microsoft runs for various OSes and applications.  (I've been in four of these NOT counting this one - one for the Windows 8 Consumer Preview (upgrade testing), Office 2010 C2R, Office 2013/365 2.0, and one for Windows 7 SP1.)  It will be interesting which scenarios they are looking to test - will it be upgrade or clean-install testing they are looking to work over?

didn't get an email here :(

 

I don't get the reason why they're sending out emails when the public preview is only in a few days
