cant wait for it...
anyway, will it allow upgrading from developer preview to consumer preview or we will have to remove DP and install CP?
I would prefer a clean install just to make sure a fresh start.

Here is a time converter. Put in the date and time then select Spain - Barcelona then put in your location and it will give you the time. Of course this is basically the announcement and don't know when the servers will go hot for the downloads. And they may get chocked with everybody trying to get a download.

I just read in a glance in some Ubuntu forum talking about WCP, somebody said I'm now "downloading" and his time zone read as UK.
Well. I could probably wrong. :(

Edit: Logically no matter what time zone is, once it's available then it's accessible to everyone, right?

Here is the talk #3 on Ubuntu Forum
