Windows 8 is on the way!

We've talked plenty about Windows 8 in the past, but Microsoft is really gearing up to get developers onboard with the highly anticipated successor to Windows 7. Microsoft showed off the latest version of Windows 8 to developers at the BUILD conference in California this week. 

To put the icing on the cake, Microsoft handed out prototype Samsung PCs to developers attending BUILD with the Windows 8 Developer Preview already installed. 

“We reimagined Windows,” said Steven Sinofsky, president of the Windows and Windows Live Division at Microsoft. “From the chipset to the user experience, Windows 8 brings a new range of capabilities without compromise.”

The biggest news, however, is that general consumers can download the Windows 8 Developer Preview starting TONIGHT at 8:00 PM Pacific Time at the following link. The developer preview will run on both 32-bit (can't we kill you already??!!) and 64-bit x86 computers. No activation will be required for those that choose to install the software, but you will need a Windows Live ID to initiate the download.

Be prepared for slow servers as everyone and their grandma will be rushing to get in line to get their "Metro on" with Windows 8.

Updated 8:28pm EST

The Windows 8 Developer Preview can be downloaded RIGHT NOW.





"If you can find a PS3 anywhere in North America that's been on shelves for more than five minutes, I'll give you 1,200 bucks for it." -- SCEA President Jack Tretton
