    1. According to them they are still working on it, and this preview version is out just to take the feedback of people. So I think once they get satisfied with their work – It will be in market. I’m still not sure when but!

  1. I managed to download the consumer preview and I have to say it frustrated the hell out me. I think the layout is all wrong. I dont want my desktop to fell like a tablet I have my Ipad for that. It all just seems a little confused and cluttered in my opinion and they made it difficult to find ANYTHING. Its not a smooth transition from 7 to 8.
