    For all you enthusiasts, the Release preview of Windows 8 is here, you can download it for free and use it as you wish, it will run on most current machines and netbooks.
    you can even run it on Virtual machines, as Oracle's Virtual box has built in support for Windows 8 and is also free.

    you can get it here, http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-8/release-preview?

    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-8/download

    We have to catch this bus on commenting about this and creating threads and discussing it to death, as this will boost our SEO and rankings coz we will be original and first..
    I am running it from day one so if you want to ask anything then I am game..

    Right now it is not for switching, for testing and commenting. reviewing and helping people to use it !!
    I am also not using it full time, but just yesterday Sumit and Moz were copmplaining about the image uploaders being slow etc, so this was one of the OS that I sued to check responses !

    It runs very well for a beta ( which I am using ) and so this release version of Windows 8 will be even better..
    and not to mention, we could become gurus of this and gather a lot of hits coz when it rolls out, people will look for info and help for this ;)

    ok well .... my software winman ca erp just corrupted my backup hp recvoery drive by making its own backup folders on it.....
    So now I am going to test this with W7 dual-boot. Has anyone done a dual boot with W7? I am htinking that I will most probably need to use Easy BCD to get this to work.
