The long awaited Windows 8 is now available to Download from Microsoft Servers which has many intriguing features and seems pretty impressive at first glance. Its a pre-beta release which will be followed with Beta, Release Candidate (RC) and Release to Manufacturing (RTM).

Some salient new features present in Windows 8 which distinguish itself from Windows 7 are as follows

  • Metro UI built specially for touch
  • Windows Store
  • Metro Style Apps with the ability to sync them with cloud
  • Better Performance with support for ARM-based chipsets
  • Newly designed Lock Screen or Welcome Page

Although this release is targeted to developers but it can be downloaded by anyone. Moreover, this release is not a stable version and might contain bugs so you should avoid using it on permanent basis.
