    Msdn subscriptions have removed the Developer download, so I would say they are about to put up the consumer.

    Later. No It's still there. Missed it first glance

    The dev download is still showing on MSDN for me.

    But bing has a link to the Consumer Preview (not live though ) - Bing

    I guess we have to give it about three more hours, at least. Six at the most.

    Ya'know what I just realized? One day, when I have kids and they're old enough, I'm going to explain to them when people used to use Windows 8 when I was about 19 - 22 (best guess). And then, I'm going to confuse them by saying that, when I was just a little kid, people were using Windows 98. They're going to wonder how the heck we had 95, 98, and 2000 before we had 7 or 8.

    Lol, though I'm not pressing F5, I am refreshing the page quit often, and watching the posts here. I wanna get my hands on that download as soon as it hits.
