    Are You Still Using Windows 8 Developer Preview?


    There was lots of hype coming up to Microsoft’s Build conference which was held in September this year. We knew that we would all be getting out first real look at Windows 8, but the main reason we were so excited was because it was rumoured that the first developer preview of Windows 8 would be made available to us all. Our wish came true, and every Windows enthusiast immediately started downloading it.

    In fact it was so popular, that over 3 million copies of the developer preview have been downloaded to date. I think it’s fairly safe to conclude that all the people who downloaded the developer preview went and installed it, but the question is:

    Are you still using the Windows 8 developer preview?

    Hi there
    Still using it -- however will need to do something if a Beta or another version doesn't appear soon -- I'll probably roll back to W7.

    I hope that MS will not suddenly end the open access to these builds and leave us only having to rely on "leaked builds" after this version expires.

    I like the fast response -- beats my W7 hands down and I liked W7 too.

    Pity though you can't run both Hyper-V and Vmware on the same host though.

    Cheers

    That is the site i have been useing the past few days. It starts off at about 5mbs then just dies after around downloading 300 to 500 mb. I have a wideband internet but it does no good.

    Doing it from a torrent so far so good.
