Only half of you have downloaded Windows 8

In a recent poll I asked how many TechRepublic members had downloaded Windows 8 Developers Preview. There weren't as many downloads as I would have guessed.

On September 23, 2011, I asked a simple poll question:

Have you downloaded and tried Windows 8 Developer Preview?

Being a person who gets paid to try every new Windows thing that comes out, I guess I have a skewed view of things — I thought an overwhelming majority of TechRepublic readers would have downloaded and tried Windows 8. I mean, I seem to be getting a ton of opinions as if most of you had downloaded it.

So why have you not downloaded the Windows 8 preview version? Are you waiting for the beta version?
