Windows 8 Consumer Preview Coming Soon

The next preview of Windows 8 i.e., The Consumer Preview was announced to arrive on Feb 29, during the Mobile World Congress, in Barcelona, Spain. The use of Leap day, by the Redmond Software giant, is used to signify the leap that Microsoft wishes to gain from the next Operating System installment. Microsoft started giving out invites for their special occasion anticipating their next release the hugely downloaded Developer Preview release earlier.

The event is scheduled to last two hours, which means we should get a complete rundown of all the differences between the Developer and Consumer builds, the ecosystem Microsoft wants to build around the Metro interface platform and, finally, see some new hardware running Windows 8. We have, of course, briefly seen a laptop or two, like Lenovo’s Yoga, running Windows 8, but we’re still waiting for the anticipated parade of ARM-based Windows 8 tablets.
The Metro Interface will be the most evident change in the Windows platform for the last 27 years or so.??? Do you think it will be a success?
