Many geeks have been getting rather excited now that the //build/ conference is in full swing and the first official developer release of the Windows 8 OS is available!
You can grab your copy of Windows 8 developer preview at http://dev.windows.com it is worth noting that if you have a MSDN subscription the download is much faster via MSDN.
As the developer preview is the very first release – there will still be a Beta, RC, RTM releases before the general release! – it is very buggy.
Currently I’m trying desperately to get it installed and am running into some of the issues with issues with trying to install it, and once have the install running there will be many more posts showing off some of the cool features you can look forward to!
