Microsoft is currently previewing Windows 8 at the BUILD conference and the web goes crazy. It appears the interest in Windows 8 is even bigger than it was for Window 7. Of course, this is due to the fact that Windows 8 is the biggest overhaul since Windows 95.
I compiled a collection of the best Windows 8 reviews that have been published today. I divided the link list into two sections. The first part covers general reviews, and the second part specific Windows 8 features.
The first blog post is from Steven Sinofsky (President of the Windows Division). Most interesting is that everyone will be able to download the developer's prelease of Windows 8 later today.
