I saw over on Engadget that the Windows 8 Developer Preview will be available for download tonight, at 8PM PST. There’s no activation and it’ll be available for 32bit and 64bit x86 processors. Of course, don’t go installing this on a computer you rely on – It’s a developer preview and bound to have unknown or unexpected problems. Good luck downloading, and let us know what you think of Microsoft’s newest in the comments!

Update: Download site is now online

    No problem, Adam. Glad I could help. You might also want to update the post and include a link (, but that’s your call.

    Our link should be going to the right place, but once the developer preview is up I’ll confirm it.
