| September 22, 2011

The Windows 8 Developer Preview offers a premature yet complete preview of the next generation of Windows, inclusive using the touch interface, spanking new desktop services and many other new features. It doesn’t matter if this release is intended for developers only, as everyone can use this program.

The touch interface makes it simple for you. But yes you must be watchful as you install it. Windows 8 Developer Preview has to get installed so cleanly, also it can’t be uninstalled afterward, therefore it is recommended to be tried at some extra computer, since being an early version, it is troublesome, unfinished, and without any support discounted by Microsoft developers. You better try it on some old system of you. Otherwise if you don’t have the required system, then you can securely run in a VirtualBox, virtual machine, as an alternative option.

Hence it offers the links to Internet Explorer and Control Panel. An old type desktop, yet existing for you if you go astray, you’ll find social networking applications, fun games, weather app, output apps and the list goes on.

Remember you will get in this preview only the trial applications, the done Windows 8 might not have had these samples in it. Well, even then to investigate them is fun, still, also as you wear out of these then you’ll be able to install and run your current apps always, while you’ve had this practice many times. It is all about it.
