Microsoft Windows 8 Consumer Preview

From what we've seen so far, Windows 8 is set to be awesome.

If you are yet to try out the Developer Preview, which has been out for a few weeks now, you may be dying to see Windows 8 in all it's glory. A new UI, new integrated game features and a file system over haul are just some of the features you have been missing out on.

Set to launch on February 29th, the Windows 8 Consumer preview will, in essence, be a 'beta'; set for the masses. This will be the most up-to-date version of Windows 8 we have seen yet and will be the most accessible - appealing to a wider testing audience. If you haven't yet tried the developer preview, I strongly suggest that you try this build once released.

One thing to note is the date, February 29th. That's slap bang in the middle of Mobile World Congress (MWC)! What does this mean? Hopefully we will see some Windows 8 tablet news, the new Metro UI catering perfectly for small tablet screens, and also perhaps the performance on ARM processors.

If you want to try the Developer Build follow through to the link below. On February 29th, you should be able to find the updated, Consumer Build, there too. But don't fret, we'll be sure to remind you nearer the date!
