Windows 8 Consumer Preview is live

Download: Windows 8 Consumer Preview

At the start of 2012, I moved from the Server business unit to Windows & Windows Live, to help out with Windows 8. When I showed off the Windows 8 Consumer Preview bits on my sleek new Samsung XE700T1A to an old friend from DevDiv, she told me that I had “drunk the Kool Aid”. And so it is – Windows 8 is an amazing achievement in UX design.
