Microsoft failed in the phone market and now they're throwing their UI onto desktops. Neat trick to get you use to their devices. :p

Sorry haters but I thought this was pretty damn impressive. Makes the ipad look like a cheap toy.

I've got a copy of the dev preview downloaded, but VMWare Fusion nor VBox will play nice with it. Guess I'll have to use my junk box to try it out.

Downloading now. Definitely gonna try this out on VMware. Maybe we can get it working, Six...

Started downloading - Time Remaining: 14 minutes. I love my new internet. :D

If you use VBox, you get through 23% of the install. With VMWare Fusion, you automatically get a BSOD.

I'll mess more with it tomorrow.

Good idea. I'll give it a shot in VMWare in a bit.
