Do you want to be among the first in the general public to test run Windows 8?

Microsoft has rolled out Windows 8 developer preview for public testing. The release contains 64-bit (x64) build with development tools and 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) build without development tools. You can only try a clean install and not an upgrade from your Windows 7. As Microsoft explains, this is not a beta version of the OS but just a preview. They’ll be updating the software a lot more before the actual release. 

System Requirements:

The Windows 8 Developer Preview works great on the same hardware that powers Windows Vista and Windows 7:

  • 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor
  • 1 gigabyte (GB) RAM (32-bit) or 2 GB RAM (64-bit)
  • 16 GB available hard disk space (32-bit) or 20 GB (64-bit)
  • DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM 1.0 or higher driver
  • Taking advantage of touch input requires a screen that supports multi-touch
  • To run Metro style Apps, you need a screen resolution of 1024 X 768 or greater

Note: You can’t uninstall the Windows 8 Developer Preview. To go back to your previous operating system, you must reinstall it from restore or installation media.
