    I am just curious, has anyone else gotten to take a look at this? My MSDN has 10 copies to try out and see if I like it. I am thinking about throwing it on a VMware machine and checking it out. While I am at it, would anyone else be interested in checking it out?

    Yeah see, I was under the impression anyone could get it. So I was shocked to see that it was on my MSDN with keys.

    It's a nice OS, i run it on my laptop, it's fun.

    But you have to get used to it, it will take a while!

    I dual booted 8 and 7 for a while. I liked the way 8 looked but decided to nuke that partition and change it to Ubuntu.

    Ubuntu ftw! I was a big user of Debian and Slackware too. W8...meh. Win98SE forever and ever.

    I've gotten too used to Windows 8 now, I love it. The Release version should only bring improvements, they've already made Explorer slicker and with a more flatter UI, looking forward to release.

    I wish I could pin Steam games to my Startscreen, but oh well, maybe in time Steam will release a Metro App Client, or update it to allow pinning of games.
