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!

I was amazed at how smooth and responsive it was. I installed in on one of my spare machines (An old Pentium 4 with 1gb of ram) and the thing ram like it was nothing and the apps opened and closed with ease and speed that I did not expect. The UI was sharp, clean and was easy to navigate. I was highly impressed with how robust the task manager was. One thing that bothered me was how long it took me to figure out how to get to the traditional Control Panel so I could get a more precise control over the OS's settings. Overall I am pleased and impressed. I will definitely be looking forward to getting Windows 8 when it's released.
