"Beta" versus "Consumer Technology Preview"




There has been a lot of talk recently about a new build that may or may be released towards the end of this month, and I've noticed that "beta" and Consumer Technology Preview" have both been tossed around quite a bit in this forum. Just for the record, a technical beta test, and a Consumer Technology Preview are most definitely not the same thing and the words "beta" and "CTP" should not be considered to be equal.

    I'm not sure where the confusion originates from. FS Protection is the consumer beta program though that may incidentally contain builds that next production release shares. As far as I know, there is no technology preview program
