I have been using the Windows 8 Preview For six months now – the Developer Preview since its public release in September and more recently, the Consumer Preview that was made available in February.

I have used it for anything from developing Windows 8 Metro style apps, through typical Office applications scenarios, browsing the internet, playing games, listening to Spotify, instant messaging etc. What I have not used it much for actually is to run Metro style apps, except for the ones I was developing myself, since there are not so many available yet (around 100) and the ones available do not fit into my daily use of a tablet or computer.
