    Hi

    That's my question, what exactly is the Windows 8 developer preview and what is it used for?
    Is the a really early version of Windows 8 for developers to look and so they can start developing software that will work with Windows 8 when it comes out?

    Can it be installed and dual booted from a second hard drive as I did with XP and Windows 7 without impacting your primary OS?
