Windows 8 preview–including download links

The future of Windows was shown this week at the BUILD conference as we spoke about earlier this week.

Stepping away from the marketing a bit, I’d like to call out two perspectives

Windows 8 presented by Steven Bink, reviews the major new features and platforms Windows 8 will run on.

Since we’ve recently reviewed his book on PowerShell, I thought it would be nice to have a PowerShell perspective by Mike Pfeiffer, Windows Server 8 Developer Preview and PowerShell v3 First Look.

If this gets your juices flowing, then go download Windows 8.

The Windows DEV centre allows you to download a preview build of Windows 8, both 32 bit and 64 bit.

Lastly the blog you should have bookmarked by now, the Building Windows 8 blog, features interesting updates, including devices and news via the build conference.
