    Download Windows 8 for free

    I heard the Microsoft has released the Windows 8 developer preview for developers. I would really like to get a copy of this one and test it as soon as possible. Furthermore I have heard that this OS is mainly targeted for tablets. Do you think that it is best suitable to desktops as well as for laptops?

    Microsoft dares to think big with Windows 8. No longer two OSs for smartphones and tablets on the one hand and notebook PCs and on the other side there will be future, but an OS for everything. Therefore, the previously separate systems 7 and Windows Mobile 7 brought together.

    The result is Windows 8 and is still at a very early stage of development. Nevertheless, one can in this preview, which is aimed primarily at developers who already want to program apps for Windows 8, the most important developments to watch. Most striking is certainly the new surface, has taken eight of the Windows Phone 7. As usual there, the desktop will now be replaced by tiles called tiles.

    The title is perhaps not entirely clear, but it is clear that the build is intended for developers, because there are bugs in it and because parts unfinished. If there would be "Windows Preview 8 is free to download" that would insinuate that it is also interesting for normal users, and that's not the purpose of the Microsoft Developer Preview

    One thing is certain: some may be Windows 8 to allow users to switch from the popular Windows 7. With the public preview version of Windows 8 You can now get a first impression of Microsoft's new operating system. The downloaded file is in ISO format. To use the program, you must first burn the CD image with any burning program to a DVD.

    The hardware requirements are identical to those of seventh Windows Vista and Windows Entering a license key is not necessary, but must be activated to meet the pre-release Microsoft's original statements yet.

    There is no update available from Windows 7. You must therefore make a fresh install on a separate partition. Since this is an early developer preview, we recommend the use of off-productive systems.
