Not so long to wait. Microsoft expects to release Internet Explorer 8 Beta after Windows Vista Service Pack 1 (SP 1). They’ve promised to release a beta version of IE 8 till June.

It won’t directly affect everybody, but will hopefully become invaluable for those that it does. We’ll likely have more to say about it at SxSW in Austin Texas.
