Interested in checking out what Microsoft’s next Operating System looks and feels like? Then head over to here to download it. Keep in mind that this is a consumer preview or beta version so we would highly advise against putting it on your everyday machine. Microsoft has posted a faq if you would like to know more before downloading/installing it but here are some key features:

Windows 8 is reimagined and reinvented from a solid core of Windows 7 speed and reliability. It’s an all-new touch interface. It’s a new Windows for new devices. And it’s your chance to be one of the first to try it out.

Swipe, slide, and zoom: Touch a full-powered PC. It’s fast and it’s fluid. Take natural, direct, hands-on control.

Apps, front and center: Apps in Windows 8 work together to get things done faster. Get them from the Windows Store.

Your Windows, everywhere: Windows 8 can connect you to your files, photos, people, and settings, wherever you sign in.

Wall-to-wall web: Internet Explorer 10 Consumer Preview brings you immersive web browsing on screens big and small.

The familiar, made better: Still devoted to your mouse and keyboard? Windows 8 makes the tried-and-true feel brand new.
