Got my hands on the Windows 8 Developer Preview and I have to say that has got me interested in Windows again. Even though this is only a pre-beta developer's preview of the OS I can say that I like what I am seeing so far. Microsoft taking a risk to try something new with Windows.
I have it currently installed on a MacBook Pro running in VMware Fusion 4 and plan to install it on a Dell Optiplex 320 and maybe, hopefully, a Dell Inspiron Duo so that I can get a chance to use the touch features. More to come.
