Tech Tuesday Live Twitter Chat – A look at the Windows 8 Consumer Preview #win7tech #winchat

I’m sure that you are all now well aware of the release of the Windows 8 Consumer Preview, the preview to the next version of Windows. As you’ll notice, this is not a final product and instead represents a work in progress that allows users to experience the new operating system while helping us to get feedback from telemetry data, forums, and more. This week’s Tech Tuesday Live Twitter Chat isn’t to do any of those things, though. Instead, it’s a chance for us to talk to you about whether or not you should download Windows 8 Consumer Preview and for us begin to show you what to expect if you do.

Windows 8 Consumer Preview is an exciting reimagined experience that will work on a range of devices from touch-enabled tablets, to laptops and desktops such as All-in-One PCs. We are excited about it and as such, we can’t wait to take our regular one hour session from 12-1pm PT tomorrow to chat with you about how to navigate the Start screen, using the Charms, and personalizing Windows 8 just for you.

This will not be a time to answer support questions nor will we be sharing new information. For all support questions, please visit here. Please notice that this chat also marks the introduction of a new hashtag, you can follow this chats in the future with #winchat. See you there!

  1. Join us from 12-1 PT (3-4 ET) on Twitter
  2. Follow the hashtag #win7tech or #winchat
  3. Follow @windows, @kristinalibby, @brandonleblanc, @daniellaycock, and @windowsblog to make sure you get the whole picture.

Note we will only be talking about the outlined topic each week and we will not be answering questions outside those topics. Questions for this week may include: Should I download Windows 8 Consumer Preview? What is Windows 8 Consumer Preview? If I have a PC from 1998 will it be able to handle the download?
