Windows 8 Developer preview is available for download

For those of you who like to live on the edge of technology you can now down a pre-beta version of Windows 8.

Yes that’s right I said Pre-beta version, you can’t get much earlier than that, in fact I didn’t even know you had pre-beta versions.

Still thinking about it, developers need to get the new operating system as early as possible, especially when Microsoft are making so many fundamental changes to make the operating system more tablet friendly.

You can download the version of windows 8 here

if you need any help installing it there is a great blog entry by yellowduckguy which goes through installing Windows 8 step by step and add screen shots it all the way.

I will add a word of caution you cannot uninstall Windows 8 so be careful where you install it, the line below was added as a note of caution

You can’t uninstall the Windows Developer Preview. To reinstall your previous operating system, you must have restore or installation media.
