Windows 8

First look at Windows 8 Release Preview

The default Metro Interface

I finished installing Windows 8 Release Preview on two test machines this morning and immediately took a few screenshots to share with you. As we build up to the final release of Microsoft Windows 8 we will have plenty more to say about this latest, greatest operating system, but for right now, there are few things to note.

The default Metro graphical user interface is rather bland, but I think that is by design. I would think of it as an empty template just begging to be personalized.
