The technical preview of Windows 10 was announced this week and is open to the public (download here). As I was travelling, I had to wait a couple of days before downloading, but finally got round to it this morning. I fired up a new machine in Hyper-V and got cracking.
The installation is pretty straight forward, and looks very much like the previous Windows installers.
And even with only 1GB of memory, the installation took less than 8 minutes to complete.
The OS is responsive, the UI is clean and I love the snappable start menu. I look forward to playing with this new release a lot more over the next couple of weeks for some real impressions.
