Microsoft has changed the way of prerelease version naming
Alpha -> Developer Preview
Beta -> Consumer Preview
Release Candidate -> Enterprise (or Business) Preview


It seems to me that this is a very good change for reasons of PR. Such
change in Fedora prerelease naming might encourage more people to test
prereleases. IMHO "Consumer Preview" sounds a lot better than "Beta"

Best regards,
