Windows 8

Can’t wait to try out Windows 8 for yourself after Microsoft’s big unveiling of the new OS at Tuesday’s Build Conference? Well, you needn’t wait any longer as the developer preview version of the OS is now available for download.

You can install it on a x86-based 32-bit or a 64-bit machine. Activation is not required, but it’s far from a finalized version of the OS, so if you do install it, expect bugs and glitches. In any case, you should definitely check out Microsoft’s Windows 8 guide to get an idea of what you can expect from the next version of Windows.

The download is available here.
