Latest Windows 8 Test Code Due Wednesday

Many in IT have been happily pounding away on Win 8's "developer preview" since last October. This Wednesday regular consumers will get the same opportunity.

The next test version is expected to be more stable and feature-rich than the one out now, though I haven't heard many complaints for current testers.

What's your experience so far with Win 8, and how do you like Metro? Share your opinions at dbarney@redmondmag.com.
