Windows 8 Consumer Preview

The next generation of Windows, a re-imagining of the operating system from the chip to the experience

This is a detailed preview of the next
major release of Windows, code-named "Windows 8". From the chipset to
the user experience, Windows 8 brings a new range of capabilities
without compromise.

Windows 8 is designed to be the first Windows client to support
systems on a chip (SoC) architectures, including ARM, and since it will
be pre-installed on a range of next generation devices, it will also
feature Metro, a NUI + GUI interface on the surface combined with a new
application platform under-the-hood designed to enable the creation of
immersive experiences.

The latest iteration of Microsoft's operating system brings an
innovative new platform and tools to developers. Windows 8 apps can use a
broad set of new libraries and controls, designed for fluid interaction
and seamless connectivity. Apps can add new capabilities to Windows and
to other apps, connecting with one another through the new interface.


Windows 8 Consumer Preview Setup will
check to see if your PC can run Windows 8 Consumer Preview and select
the right download. Setup also features a compatibility report and
upgrade assistance. Built-in tools for creating an ISO or bootable flash
drive are available for some previous versions of Windows (excluding
Windows XP and earlier).

If you would prefer not to use Windows 8 Consumer Preview Setup, you can
download Windows 8 Consumer Preview in ISO format instead.

The easiest way to convert an ISO file to a DVD in Windows 7 is to use
Windows Disc Image Burner. On a PC running Windows XP or Windows Vista, a
third-party program is required to convert an ISO file into installable
media - and DVD burning software often includes this capability. One
option is the USB/DVD download tool provided by the Microsoft Store. You
can also download Windows 8 Consumer Preview Setup, which includes
tools that allow you to create a DVD or USB flash drive from an ISO file
(Windows Vista or Windows 7 required).

Here are some key features of "Windows 8":

Touch-First User Interface:

· Metro style - Windows 8 introduces a new Metro style interface built
for touch, which shows information important to you, embodies simplicity
and gives you control. The Metro style UI is equally at home with a
mouse and keyboard as well.
· Touch-first browsing, not just browsing on a touch device - Providing a
fast and fluid touch-browsing experience, Internet Explorer 10 puts
sites at the center on new Windows 8 devices.

More Ways to Engage With Powerful, Connected Apps:

· Powered by apps - Metro style apps built for Windows 8 are the focal
point of your experience, filling your entire screen so there are no
· Apps can work together - Apps communicate with each other in Windows
8. For example, you can easily select and email photos from different
places, such as Facebook, Flickr or on your hard drive.
· Your experience syncs across your devices - Live roams all the content
from the cloud services you use most — photos, email, calendar and
contacts — keeping them up-to-date on your devices. With SkyDrive, you
can access your files, photos and documents from virtually anywhere with
any browser or with Metro style apps in Windows 8.

Enhanced Fundamentals:

· The best of Windows 7, only better - Windows 8 is built on the
rock-solid foundation of Windows 7, delivering improvements in
performance, security, privacy and system reliability. Windows 8 reduces
the memory footprint needed - even on the lowest-end hardware - leaving
more room for your apps.
· Preserving power-user favorites and making them better - For those who
push the limits of their PC, Windows 8 features an enhanced Task
Manager and Windows Explorer and new, flexible options for multimonitor

New Developer Opportunities:

· Windows Store - The Windows Store will allow developers to sell their
apps anywhere Windows is sold worldwide, whether they’re creating new
games or familiar productivity tools.
· Build using more languages - Windows 8 lets you leverage your existing
skills and code assets to create great experiences using the
programming language you prefer.
· Rich hardware integration leads to richer experiences, particularly
for games - DirectX 11 gaming power underlies Windows 8, allowing the
easy creation of full-screen games with smooth, flicker-free action.

New Generation of Hardware:

· One Windows - many shapes and sizes - Support for ARM-based chipsets,
x86 (as well as x32 and x64) devices, touch and sensors means Windows 8
works beautifully across a spectrum of devices, from 10-inch tablets and
laptops to all-in-ones with 27-inch high-definition screens.
· Always connected - With Windows 8, new ultrathin PCs and tablets turn
on instantly, run all day on a single charge and stay connected to the
Internet so your PC is ready when you are. Next-generation system on a
chip (SoC) support will also enable greatly extended standby and
low-power states.
· Tap the full power of your PC - Windows 8 runs on PCs and is
compatible with the devices and programs you use today on Windows 7,
without compromise, to deliver the performance you expect of a PC.

· 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor;
· 1 gigabyte (GB) RAM (32-bit) or 2 GB RAM (64-bit);
· 16 GB available hard disk space (32-bit) or 20 GB (64-bit);
· DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM 1.0 or higher driver.
· Taking advantage of touch input requires a screen that supports multi-touch
