    Would anyone be able to PM me the link for the web installer. Some over at another forum (MDL) have it but of course, wont share it. As of now, it does not give you the Consumer Preview but the hope is that this is where we may be able to get it early.

    Hi there
    it's also possible that it *might* be available if you are a technet suscriber -- I don't know so don't join technet just for this reason alone. There are other very good reasons for joining technet however - especially if you want to test / out all sorts of Windows / Servers and also lget Server experience without it costing you a fortune (especially as a private individual).

    I'm a member of Technet and it isn't showing there yet, and might not at all. In the past some betas have appeared there and others not, so I guess we shall have to wait and see.
