The day many have been waiting for has finally arrived. The Windows 8 consumer preview is now available for download at the following links below. We'll add direct links once they become available.

The consumer preview represents the first look in to Windows 8 that is, as the name denotes, intended to let consumers try out the new OS. The previously released version, the Windows Developers Preview, was locked down and only provided a limited look at what the new OS has to offer.

Guess I'll check it out in a VM. Not particularly excited for Windows 8 but I feel compelled to at least give it a look.
