For those that don't know, Windows 8: Consumer Preview (a.k.a. Windows 8 Beta 2.0) came out yesterday as a free downloadable upgrade from Microsoft. You can get it from here: Windows 8 Consumer Preview. They're going to market it as a brand new OS, but it's more a major upgrade/overhaul to Windows 7 just as Windows 98SE was to Windows 95. The biggest change is the Metro UI, which replaces the Start button and all of it's functions with a new window similar to the Windows 7 Phones. It also adds XBL support, build-in Skydrive functionality, and a new Apps Store for digital purchases. I've been running it for 24 hours now, and was wondering if anyone else has given it a try?
