A few weeks ago I downloaded a Developer Preview of Windows 8. You can get it HERE. I have been playing with it some and overall I am not that big of a fan as far as using it on a laptop goes. It borrows a lot from the windows phone 7 and is clearly aimed at touch screen devices. I am having issues without having a start menu. Who knows how much its likely to change between now and its release. I guess we'll have to wait and see.
This VIDEO does a decent job of running you through the basics. Stay tuned.
