It seems like Microsoft is getting ready to release the Windows 8 Consumer Preview for download.

A reader sent us a tip that the Bing Windows 8 start page is up again.

The link in the bottom left takes you to the Microsoft Windows 8 Preview page.

    Dear Onuora,

    That’s nice, Microsoft letting us to taste the new Windows Product. I’ve downloaded the Windows 8 Guide and I’ll read later, it’s out of reach to get a quick result downloading The Windows 8 Developing Preview, it’ll take hours to do it. My flash internet connection ability is low. Usualy I use the phone internet connection but the lightnings in this area won’t let me, now I’m using the flash modem. I understand that The Build-in Windows 8 Preview in English, 32-bit(x86) needs 2,8 GB space, and to build the Metro style apps we have to download Windows 8 Preview developer tools, 64-bit(x64) which is impossible. I was thinking maybe if the experiment sound good, then there will be a series of Windows Product on my dell inspiron 8600; Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8 without the Metro apps, under a single Boot Manager. Thank you.
