Just installed it to vm last night, free dl preview. Seems to be much more user friendly than w8.
Anybody else give it a try yet ?

 No problem to burn this dl to disc, and then load to a vm, that way you can try it out and if you don't like it just delete, if you do then go from there.

Or just load the .iso up as a virtual disc.

Downloaded, installed in vmware and currently playing with it. First impression: ~90% Windows 8 + a few changes.

Hmm...maybe I'll try running as a virtual machine. I've had little experience with Win8 but there were very small features removed that are too important me to consider moving up
