Installing Windows 10 Preview


Windows 10 preview has been around for a while now, but I've been testing it only since Saturday. At first look it seems that this is just a minor UI change, but when you start playing with it, you'll see lots of interesting features that Microsoft introduced to make Windows easier to use across all platforms.
A following blog posts will now follow to deep dive into the features of Windows 10 preview. The post below shows where to download the software and how to install it in a VM.
