An Adventure Through The Windows 8 Dev Preview

 

VMWare has release a new version of VMWare Fusion. Version 4 is optimized for Mac OS X 10.7 (Lion). It comes with about 90+ new features including the simple ability to run a copy of 10.7 Lion or Lion Server within a Virtual Machine. It also supports 10.6 Snow Leopard and Snow Leopard Server. It’s available for a promo price of $49.99 until the end of the year.

I’m a huge fan of virtualizing Operating Systems, so jumped right at the opportunity for a version optimized specifically for my OS.

Then, i found out that today, Microsoft decided to release a Developer Preview of Windows 8 downloadable for free from their Developer site.

It took me about an hour to download because I’m sure i wasn’t the only one downloading it at the time. Within VMWare Fusion 4 it took about 15 minutes to install. It honestly took longer for Windows 8 to boot up than it did to actually install it in a Virtual Machine.

Right when i jumped into the OS i was blown away. Finally, Microsoft did something right for Windows. A beautiful full screen start menu interface using a “Metro Style” application interface. I took a bunch of screenshots to show everyone, and let them know how beautifully designed almost every part of this OS really is. Here we go after the break.
