Finally the Internet is back after my house move.
Had a look at the new consumer preview edition of Windows 8 and I have to say I'm very impressed.
Just to see how much work there would be in one of my key products I installed the etouchOS client module. It works like a charm! I will say that we'll need to improve the graphics resolution of the buttons and icons, but it didn't miss a beat.
Nice to know! Of course at this stage etouchOS will only work on the Intel version of Windows 8 and not the ARM version. More on that at a later date.
You can download a free preview copy of http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-8/consumer-preview
I ran mine in a Virtual Box ( free from https://www.virtualbox.org/ )
I haven't really stress tested Windows 8, after all I was just assessing its ability to run my software.
