Windows 8 Developer Preview available for download.

Huge news for tablet developers: Microsoft has made Windows 8 Developer Preview available for download in a variety of configurations (including 32 bit ISO’s) here.

With some pundits forecasting doom for Microsoft if Windows 8 is not successful, others gaze into the same murky crystal ball and state the same adverse outcome is in store for the Apple iPad after Windows 8’s commercial release.

I will determine this myself by installing the full preview (Windows Developer Preview with developer tools English, 64-bit) – a 4.8 GB, ISO download that includes the OS, developer tools, and applications sporting the Metro interface.

Incidentally Windows 7 Hacker has a great article on how to install the Win 8 preview using VirtualBox running on Windows 7.
