    Windows 8 Developer Preview

    Post by Kaldor on Fri Sep 16, 2011 6:14 am

    Anyone giving this a go yet? I downloaded the 32 bit version, but I can't get it to boot on a VM. I'll wait a bit longer.

    They have an entirely redesigned UI. Seems like a love or hate thing. Personally, I think I'll be much happier sticking to GNOME 3's plan as opposed to this "Metro" idea. It'll definitely give Android and iOS a run, though. Whether that's a good thing is up for you to decide.

    If you want to check out Windows 8 you can download the developer preview at the Windows Dev Center.

    Mhh weird, the developer preview should run in Virtual Box for example.
    I read some tests and they said this early version is a bit fucked up and not rly worth trying unless you rly want to try and see the new metro look...

    Which VM did you try?

    Latest VirtualBox. I'll probably wait for a Win8 Alpha or Beta before I try it.
