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

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.

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.
