    Windows 8 – The Developer Preview

    Today Microsoft is giving away a free developer preview of Windows 8 to everybody!

    You probably want to try out the preview release—and you can. Starting later tonight you can download the Windows 8 Developer Preview. This includes a 64-bit (x64) build with development tools to build apps, and a 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) build without development tools.
    Source: Welcome to Windows 8

    This past few days I ran the x86 DP on a production machine and I've got to say I'm impressed by some things and annoyed by others. The thing you should remember is that this is a Developer Preview, not an actual alpha or beta or what have you. That's why they shove Metro up your throat. I kinda dig the new task manager and the metro experience isn't bad. But I hate that fricking ribbon in explorer. Resource and stability wise it's been performing OK, though there is no fast boot, yet, like M$ was claiming or maybe they're just talking only booting from SSD or something. And the worst part is that I've seen some apps crash which I don't find pleasant especially when there is no architecture change afaik. In the end, it might not be such a bad thing but with Win7 Pro having been supported until 2020 I really don't need to worry about the new OS being that great/bad.

    I think i'm gonna try it until Beta version next year. DP is really not so good for testing, now that i've seen some testing results about its unstableness.
