Get ’em while they’re hot! Microsoft unveils several ‘beta’s…

While many techies were distracted by other events at Mobile World Congress 2012, Microsoft unveiled the Windows 8 Consumer Preview, making it available for public consumption.  Okay, okay, you probably already knew that.  But did you know that Windows Server 8 “Beta” and Visual Studio 11 Beta (along with Team Foundation Server and Team Explorer Betas) are available for download as well?  I’d write more, but I’m too busy getting my hands dirty with these new Microsoft bits.

I’ve already installed Windows 8 in a VM, cleanly on a Lenovo ThinkPad W510, and did an upgrade install on a Lenovo ThinkPad T400S.  I’ve also installed Windows Server 8 Beta in a VM and Visual Studio 11 Beta once online and once offline.  Now it’s time to play!
