Windows 8 Consumer Preview
 
Well the Windows 8 consumer preview is available starting Feb 29. Anyone going to run it? Main OS/dual boot, VM? I might VM it or try it on my laptop for fun. I think the dl is supposed to be available at 6am PST

I will install it on VM and also on 7 years old Samsung Q1 UMPC to see how well it will run with 512MB RAM and 30GB hard drive. :)

Same. Mine will be done in 4 minutes. I'll try it out on VMWare once I get it.

Hmm it's tied to your MS account now, including email and password. I hate Metro. I don't see what's new lol...
