Windows 8 Consumer Preview Available!
The Consumer Preview of Windows 8 is available for download. This release is the first official Windows 8 build drop from Microsoft since the Developer Preview, which was released last September. This was downloaded quite rapidly, surpassing the 500,000 downloads mark within 24 hours of release, and the 3 million mark by December, so I would expect this to surpass that easily.
If you are like me and ready to jump on the download follow the links below. I was able to download at a pretty good speed so I know Microsoft is ready for this
