Like many people, I grabbed the Windows 8 Customer Preview yesterday. I decided, since I'm at a conference right now, to try to Live in Windows 8 and VS 2011 for the rest of the week until Monday.
Installation over the top of the Windows 8 Developer Preview from build was quick and painless. I chose not to log in using my Live account as I don't trust it yet (more on this choice later) and get some basic apps installed such as Metro Twit and Paint.NET. Generally speaking, I like the look and feel of Windows 8 so far and it seems to run as well as the Developer Preview. As a keyboard guy without a touch laptop I'm finding things like this article from Tim fairly helpful. I'll be writing seperate articles on other aspects of Dev 11 and the apps that ship with Windows 8 Consumer Preview as I get time.
