So I installed Windows 8 Release Preview today. I had a bit of a trouble since I first tried the unsupported method that ported my user profile from the previous version which was something between CP and RP. After backing up my files and doing a clean install – things started whirring and it works great now. It works so great in fact that I now love Windows 8. It has been an interesting experience with Developer Preview and Consumer Preview before, but mostly from the novelty of developing for a new platform that is somewhat familiar to a WPF/Silverlight developer. The only metro apps that I used were the ones I worked on myself and otherwise – I had staid in the desktop world, which is still good – with numerous improvements from Windows 7. With RP and the updated set of apps – things changed. I love the new apps. They finally have features that I can find useful and they look brilliant in the chromeless Metro style on my laptop.
