Windows 8 Consumer Preview

Anyone else currently running it? I am really liking all the new features, the new start screen and lock screens are absolutely amazing and it almost has an Android OS feel! There is even an app store that has popular Android games such as Cut The Rope. In my opinion, Microsoft is taking steps in the right direction with this new OS, just the demo is so fast and so smooth. All they need to do is add better security and a decent developing base and I would definitely be willing to try it as a new permanent solution. For those of you who have not tried it, try it. You will see what I am talking about.

I have installed it in VMware workstation and was not impressed with it. I think it would be a great OS for a smart phone or a tablet. For the desktop, I did not care for it at all. I'll stick with Windows 7 for now. Just another $$$$ grab for M$.

I don't mind updates, but I hate it when companies constantly feel the need to change the whole design. Yeah I know; it's all business.

Interesting how operating systems seem to be dumbing-down to act like tablets or phones.
Regardless, I might give it a go, because I love my Windows Phone 7 operating system, and it looks like Windows 8 is modeled off that.

Yeah, I know how you feel, but when you don't ever use Windows anyway, a new design really just feels like how it has been. What I really don't like is how the gnome systems are starting to use Unity now. It bugs me, Unity is terrible =/ You have to go to applications and use a search bar just to find the terminal, it is frustrating, it is easier to just switch to command line mode...

@Mario, yeah, I have installed it on my Motorola tablet and I definitely do prefer it on the tablet, but since I am using a Tablet PC, I think that that makes it a lot better for me.

Windows 8 looks heavily built around their Metro concept. It looks like it has quite a few neat improvements, but eh. I don't need it right now.

I have a Windows 7 computer, but don't know how I'd feel if the whole 'tablet' theme came out for a computer.. plus, I'm looking towards trying out a Mac for college.

Amalthea will become famous soon enough

I've never tried out a demo/preview OS before, how do I go on about doing that? (Yes, I'm a terrible computer noob, lol.)
