A consumer preview of Windows 8 has been released. I really recommend checking it out. I have seen it run on several ultra books (from about 700 euro’s each) and it ran great! So you don’t need a 2000 euro machine to run it and play around with the new metro interface. I have written earlier about the developer preview, but this release contains over 100.000 changes and a newer version of internet explorer. As web developer it’s always nice to test web applications with the latest browsers.
