So, what do you think of Windows 8?
By Joe Wilcox


I must be candid. The best product reviews come from you. You're the audience BetaNews reaches, and you use software in real ways that no benchmark can measure. So once again, I ask for your review -- this time Windows 8 Consumer Preview, which is now available for download as upgrade or in a virtual machine.

Your first impressions will matter to other readers, or even a thorough review. Please comment to this post. I'll collect first impressions/short reviews into a separate post. However, I'd love to run your review, with name, photo and bio instead. Please email joe at betanews dot com to contribute a review. To everyone: Please provide specs on your test systems, which will be valuable reference for other Consumer Previewers.

Several reader byline reviews is no problem. We can't write enough on Windows 8 or offer too many reactions to the Consumer Preview. An IT manager, software developer, small business owner or Windows enthusiast will have different impressions.

Windows 8 Consumer Preview is available in 32-bit and 64-bit versions, if you don't have it yet.

Be careful and read the FAQ.

Programs on your system will survive if you upgrade from Windows 7, but not if you upgrade from Vista or XP; even if during the pre-installation scan it says they are compatible!
