Download Windows 8 Public Preview – Microsoft has just made publicly available to download Windows 8 Public Developer Preview. Windows 8 is currently being presented at Microsoft BUILD Conference in Los Angeles. You can choose to download Windows 8 Public Preview for your 32-bit machine, 64-bit, or the one with the developer tools. If you don’t understand which version to download, you’ll most likely need to download the 32-bit version (x32) without the developer tools.
Download Windows 8 Public Preview
Please note that this version of Microsoft Windows 8 Public Preview is still in pre-beta so expect bugs or maybe minor performance issues. However, judging from the previous Windows 7’s Public Developer Preview, it should stable enough to be used as the main OS. I’m just about to download and install it myself after I write this post, so I can’t confirm this assumption just yet. However, expect a mini Windows 8 review on Craving Tech soon so you’ll be one of the first to know about its performance and whether your applications and games will work with the Windows 8 Public Developer Preview.
According to Microsoft:
The Windows Developer Preview is a pre-beta version of Windows 8 for developers. These downloads include prerelease software that may change without notice. The software is provided as is, and you bear the risk of using it. It may not be stable, operate correctly or work the way the final version of the software will. It should not be used in a production environment. The features and functionality in the prerelease software may not appear in the final version. Some product features and functionality may require advanced or additional hardware, or installation of other software.
