But Today, Tech Gaint Microsoft announced today a launch date for a “consumer preview” version of Windows 8, the long-awaited update to its flagship operating system. Microsoft will take the wraps off the new OS on February 29, 2012, during the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. Windows 8 will get its own separate event, at a local hotel – the better, presumably, to cater to a small army of curious reporters.

The introduction of a test, or beta, version of Windows 8 to the public is expected to be accompanied by the opening of an “app store” stocked with mini-programs tailored for the next-generation operating system. Windows 8 will also support multiple monitors with the new ability to natively display different background images on each display and customized taskbar(s) on each of the connected displays.
