So I've been keeping up with the Windows 8 M8 thread that has been going on but it's a lot of information and most of it is just about how good or bad the phone is. I don't care about those things so I was wondering if I could just ask some simple questions and get simple answers. Please don't reply if your reply is "Check the windows 8 thread" or "use search", I have, I tried, just answer the questions please.

1. Will it be possible to make a RUU to put Windows 8 on a regular HTC One M8?
1a. If so, how long do you think it will take?

2. Is anyone talking about making one in one of the other forums?
2a. Is there are beta out for one yet?

Well, the hardware is exactly the same.The only thing is its carrier locked. There's some work to be done before porting it to the regular gsm variant, I guess. Everybody's waiting for an RUU from HTC(if they release one).
Keep your fingers crossed ! But you lose a lot of features that android offers, compared to windows phone.

The windows thread is there for exactly such questions I'm afraid. I don't see why you wouldn't ask there, where the guys keeping up on this can help you?

Moved to Windows 8 M8 Q&A since that's what it's about.

Because I don't spend a lot of time around these parts and don't feel like sorting through 20+ pages of replies and fanboyisms to find information. A simple "No, not now" is more the enough information for me. I don't enjoy fanboying and don't like to bother putting my 2 cents in. I just want to know whats going on and leave.
