    I was waiting for a windows dual boot since ages.

    I loved the presentation, Microsoft has done it right!

    Better make a partition then :D.

    I'm downloading from this link:
    Windows 8 Consumer Preview
    Which one will it download me - 32bit or 64bit Win8? I'm also downloading from the other link too, just in case :D.
