Windows The Windows 8 release Preview has been released, so go out and get it, test it, and wax lyrically, or complain loudly. I'm installing it as we speak, so no word, thoughts, or impressions from me yet. Like it or hate it, at least have fun, folks.

You can set it up without a Live account. I've run it like that for a while.

Also, after a while it ... becomes strangely non-annoying: Most apps are pinned to my taskbar, and for the others, Win + type-to-search works quite well, even though the graphical transition is a bit jarring. I could easily use it daily (and in fact I've done so since the desktop preview arrived) - though I wouldn't say it's better than Win7, everything considered.

And no, I don't use a single metro app. Why would I?
