Enthusiasts are eager to get their hands on Windows 8, even in unfinished form

We reported yesterday that Microsoft made its highly anticipated next generation operating system, Windows 8, available to the public. The Windows 8 Developer Preview is available in three versions:

  • Windows Developer Preview with developer tools (x64)
  • Windows Developer Preview (x64)
  • Windows Developer Preview (x86)

AllThingsD is now reporting that 500,000 copies of the Windows 8 Developer Preview have been downloaded since last night. “We still have a long way to go with Windows 8,” said Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer. “Our approach to these new opportunities is centered in Windows. It’s not about doing something else. It’s about broadly re-imagining Windows.”

Ballmer also noted that Microsoft isn't going to be favoring Intel or ARM when it comes to processor choice for Windows 8. Instead, Ballmer notes that, “It’s going to be Intel and ARM.”

If you haven't already download the Windows 8 Developer Preview, you can grab it here.
