As most of the tech press expected, Microsoft announced the release of windows 8 Consumer Preview to the public. I've covered the expected release on the blog as well as have gone over some of the details regarding features and requirements for Windows 8.
If you're looking to give windows 8 a spin this is the version you want. It will give you a more stable experience and provide you with a glimpse of what to expect in Windows 8 when it is finally released later this year.
Make sure that your computer meets the minimum requirements and that you watch for some of the issues experienced by other users.
I'll be giving Consumer Preview a spin so check back soon for some updates. If you've given Consumer Preview a try, what do you think of it thus far?
