Windows 8 Consumer Preview Impressions

As we sit back and enjoy the coverage coming from the Mobile World Congress, we are also getting a taste of Windows 8 in terms of the Consumer Preview.  Earlier we got a chance to play with the Developer Preview, but a lot has changed - and for the better - in this version.  ExtremeTech has more details and you can head on over and snag the ISO for Windows 8 here.

Most importantly, though, the Start Screen has received a few tweaks that make it much more usable for mouse-and-keyboard users. In the Developer Preview, the horizontal-scrolling Start Screen was truly atrocious. In the Consumer Preview, semantic zoom now works on the Start Screen (and is a joy to use with the mouse scroll wheel).
