    Windows 8 Beta - Windows 8 download, news and rumors

    I'm linking that just so people can see it. I'm so out of the loop, I didn't even know they were working on a Windows 8. I guess I should have known though, they're almost always working on the next OS, eh? I'll have to take a better look at it before I can form an opinion though.

    Yes, in response to Apple's consistency between all of their products.

    Don't install the beta unless you want to eventually buy Windows8. There is NO "uninstall" to go back down to Windows7.

    It looks kinda like a Flipbook OS. Could be cool; especially for tablets.

    I installed it as a virtual OS - not impressed. Still looks like someone took a box of crayons to it.

    I feel so....cushioned....a few years past any contact with windows and I'm living an e-life so serene. I'm inclined to look into this 8 just out of curiousity. But a dark shadow passes overhead whenever I step into the alley....

    Had the beta running for two days and I'd like it... if it was on a tablet. It just doesn't feel right on a non-touch PC. I guess I'll stick with my Windows 7 for another couple of years.

    EDIT: I installed it on another partition of course!

    Once I got the startbar orb back, it felt just like 7.
    On a touch screen it would be cool, but the tiny tumbnails for non microsoft "apps" (or programs as I like to call them) is lame, and the icon grouping is just random.
    Thats what ' beta ' means tho.
