Many of us have been waiting for the arrival of Windows 8 so when Microsoft released the pre-release version early yesterday, we expected it will be download a lot in a short span of time. Still, we were a bit surprised to know that the Consumer Preview has reached a million downloads in just one day. Talk about the high level of excitement on this one.
This bit of good news for Microsoft was announced Building Windows Twitter account . Let us clarify though that 1 million DLs doesn't necessarily mean 1 million different users. We've heard a few accounts of multiple downloads because of several reasons, from the files not working to using the Beta on different devices. However, it's still a pretty mean feat; one million downloads in 24 hours is clearly nothing to scoff at. Also, it tells us that, yep, Windows 8 will most probably be one of the biggest (if not the biggest) tech announcements of the year.
We can feel the anticipation. Let's just hope the final retail version won't disappoint. Anyway, click here if you want to download the Windows 8 Consumer Preview.
