Windows 8 beta candidate version number revealed?

Windows 8 is getting closer and closer to being made available to everyone via the promised public beta test. It's supposed to be released sometime in late February. Until then, Microsoft is busy in Redmond testing release candidate builds for the beta. Now reports that the version number for the beta candidate build for Windows 8 has been revealed.

According to the site's Windows 8 builds list, the build number for the release candidate is officially called 8222.0.winmain_win8beta.120131-1912. Previously it was reported that Windows 8 had entered what is known as its Beta Escrow period, where internal testers will keep testing builds of the operating system until it is ready to be released.

We wouldn't be surprised if someone decided to leak the final beta out before Microsoft officially puts it out for public consumption.
