 Post subject: Windows 8 Demo & Dev Preview  Topic is solved
New postPosted: Tue Sep 13, 2011 3:15 pm 
For this post the author Mike has received thanks - 2: Rich, UVAIS

Hey everyone! I'm wrapping up watching the Windows 8 Build Conference Keynote... and I must say that I'm pretty impressed. I've previously said some things about Windows 8, but now that I've been able to see it I can honestly say that some of my views have changed.

Check out the keynote/demos here.

The Windows 8 Dev Preview goes up for download tonight at 20:00 PDT at dev.windows.com... but don't go to the site until a couple hours later. I need enough bandwidth to get my copy first :)

I'll be trying this build out. Anyone want to lend a hand with getting the word out/getting some tutorials up to help people try Windows 8?

Not really planning on sleeping tonight... at all.

If I get a free minute away from school I'm more than willing to help out with tutorials, etc. I'm downloading Win8 right now; hopefully I'll have it installed by tomorrow. Should have brought a blank DVD to class... my laptop can't boot from USB :(

I'm really glad it runs on *legacy* hardware! I thought my laptop (circa November 2006) would barely run Vista, and then it ran 7 just peachy, and now 8!!!
