Microsoft Releases Windows 8 Preview ISO

By September 16, 2011April 4th, 2020News

Windows 8 (Metro)

For those of you who just can’t wait for Windows 8, Microsoft has released a downloadable and fully functioning preview ISO for download and installation.  This is pre-beta, it’s not intended for actual production use, and everything is subject to change.  Microsoft is releasing this software and related SDK’s so developers can get started on Windows 8 applications – Metro in particular.

What remains unclear is if DirectX 11.1 is included with the package and the related development tools.  Perhaps some of our talented members can get the software running and shed some light on Microsoft’s developer support for stereoscopic 3D gaming?   Share your results!
