Free Windows 8 Consumer Preview Available Now for Download

Microsoft has released the Windows 8 Consumer Preview build of their next OS, and it’s free to download and install to anyone with the proper PC setup.  If you’re interested in test driving this OS out you can do so by downloading it from here.  Windows 8 is definitely the most unique looking MS OS to date, and if you own an Xbox 360 its user interface will feel very familiar.  In fact, in Windows 8 XBL will be integrated into the OS itself making it even easier for gamers to stay on top of their hobby than ever before.  For official Windows 8 Consumer Preview build details and video demos head on over to this link.

I’m definitely thinking about taking the plunge if I can motivate myself to play with my old Windows PC that has been neglected since my Mac revelation last Summer.  I really think MS has finally put some thought into their OS, and dare I say it, got a little creative?  Maybe Apple’s re-surging dominance is scaring them after all?  You’ve been thinking about trying this whole Windows 8 thing out…
