Windows 8 Consumer Preview

Today the Windows team announced the release of the Windows 8 Consumer Preview, coming on the heels of the Developer Preview we'd released last year. While the next best thing is still a work in progress we hope you will try it out and tell us what you think.

There's also a new Windows developer blog where we can continue our conversation with the developer community.

Thanks to developers worldwide for your interest in Windows 8 thus far, for your feedback and the great apps you are building or planning - and for being true north for the XAML developer platform team and me.

PS: Yes I'm alive. Now you know what I've been up to.

  • Hi! What do you guys think about using win8 on destkop? Metro is terrific on tablet computers but I've found metro + classic win interface on a desktop a bit inconsistent and confusing. In a developer edition there has been a way to disable metro by setting value "RPEnabled" to 0 in registry. Now that feature is gone, classic start menu is missing too. Constantly switching between metro and classic is pretty annoying to me.
