Windows 8 Consumer Preview Download

As expected Microsoft Windows 8 Consumer Preview is out and is available for Free Download. Last year Microsoft had made the Developer Preview of Windows 8 available for the public and it was indeed a great previewing the next Generation OS from Microsoft.

There is no doubt a large number of Windows users will migrate to Windows 8 once its Final version is launched. Right now you can get the look and feel of the OS without spending a dime with the Free Download of Consumer Preview.

Though the OS is still in testing and there ought to be millions of bug fixes before the final version is released. Still its worth having a look at this version (as a secondary Operating System).

I won’t recommend installing the preview or beta versions as your primary operating system mainly because updates for these versions do not come out as frequent as the Final versions have and this means bugs will pop up to annoy your peace every now and then.

Microsoft says there are about 100,000 lines of codes changed/added after the release of Developer Preview.
