Windows 8 doesn't exist yet.There is a only a pre-beta test version available. The reason it's a test version instead of a released version is that it still has bugs in it, and Microsoft is looking for test users to inform them of other bugs as they are found.

 

In my view, unless you have a spare computer to install it on, and enjoy testing of software and reporting of bugs to Microsoft, installing such test software is just looking for trouble.

 

Yes, you can install the test version, but for almost everyone I strongly advise *against* doing that, and waiting for it to be released.
