Playing about with Windows 8 Consumer Preview

Windows preview was released a week or so ago so I thought why not download it and give it a blast on a virtual machine.

Thoughts

It took me a couple of minutes to work out the changes with the default menu being hidden behind the tiled desktop.  Lots of integration options with online services.  I think it would be more efficient using on a touch screen setup. Actually tempts me to buy a tablet when the full release is out. Liking the way Microsoft is taking the Windows operating system.
