Windows 8 Consumer Preview

Last night I downloaded the Windows 8 Consumer Preview and today I've installed it in Oracle's VirtualBox.
Here's a video of setting up the Guest for Windows 8 and then the installation. Total time was almost 18 minutes on my old quad core computer.

I've liked using VirtualBox for many years now as I needed a way to run some older Windows programs that don't work very well in Windows 7. So it is perfect for setting up a new operating system in for the first time.
I haven't explored Windows 8 much, yet, but when I do I'll make some more videos on what I find.
