The Windows 8 Consumer Preview (aka Windows 8 Beta) is now available for download, following the worldwide announcement at Barcelona.

To download Windows 8 Consumer Preview, click here. I’m going to install it tonight on my Acer Iconia W500, which currently runs the Windows 8 Developer Preview.


What’s new in a nutshell.

  • Natural touch interface, fast and fluid
  • App-centric: Download apps from the Windows Store
  • Cloud-connected Windows experience lets you access your files, pictures, etc wherever you signin from.
  • Internet Explorer 10 – browsing experience redefined
  • Choose between the Metro style touch interface and the classic mouse interface
