    I think I found one but, I don't have time to cut a partition to try it!

    (it's the MDL one, btw)

    I hope it's not a 4GB waste!

    That likely depends on what you try to do with it. A clean install might be tricky depending on what keys it accepts for the install. If you update your current install you may get a watermark on your desktop. You may have to do a clean install to go to the official final release when it comes out too. Have fun and let us know how it goes if you decide to have a go and take a look.

    Faikee, who released it on mdl, is generally considered to be totally reliable.

    The WinBeta link from Dave44 covers it pretty good. I was going to compile a little vid on multitasking and a few other things but I've got to make it presentable first!

    I'll put the iso in my Dropbox if anybody wants to scoop it up.

    Geez, everyone's over here trying to scour out the very few details known about Update 1 and I'm over here expecting very little because it's been the same process on Windows Phone.

    Windows Phone 8's GDR1 release had nothing exciting about it. GRD2 added some support for cool tidbits for Nokia's 1020 PureView handset. GDR3 actually added some legit features that are worth having, an interesting one is an "X" button to close out of apps now.

    A release that's coming off the last one only six months ago isn't going to much in terms of new features and goodies in it. Just some tweaks, patches, and hotfixes. Call it, a super service pack.
