Windows I'm swamped with real-world work at the moment, so you'll have to settle for this quickie: the consumer preview for Windows 8 has been released. Go get it and report in what you find!

Must be nice. Nice and expensive too.

Although my download didn't go at my connection's maximum speed (~310KB/sec), it was good enough for me. For a flat-rate of twenty bucks a month, I don't think that's too bad. I'm more concerned about having the Internet *at all* for the long term than having shitloads of bandwidth, but what I have is adequate in most cases (usually as long as I'm not downloading torrents, which I tend avoid for this reason and a few others).

I'm just trying to figure out how I'm going to go about installing it. I am on a 64-bit machine with 1 gig of memory, so 64-bit is out of the question. Furthermore, with only 1GB of memory, it is likely that virtualization is out of the question. I don't have any free unpartitioned space, meaning I will have to use my current / partition and backup /home in case Windows wants to be a douche and wipe it out too.

So there might be quite a bit of preparation before I undergo the process, and it better be at least somewhat interesting if I do decide to take the plunge to try it out. When I'm done, I'll just have to re-install Debian.
