Windows 8 at BUILD

Today is the start of the Microsoft BUILD conference in California where we will get the first real glimpse of Windows 8.  If you are not one of the lucky few who are able to attend you can still catch the keynote speeches today and tomorrow on the BUILD website.   The event starts at 9am PST, Noon central today.

Head over the the official BUILD website for additional details.

Note:  The links to the streaming player is not available yet, however I expect them to show up several minutes prior to the keynote.

Update 2:  Looks like the downloads are live!   Go to the Building Windows 8 Blog and grab the dev preview tonight!

Update:  Posted on the Building Windows 8 Blog:

You probably want to try out the preview release—and you can. Starting at 8PM today, Seattle time, you can download all of the code that attendees at BUILD received. This includes 32 or 64 bit x86 builds, with or without development tools. The releases also include a suite of sample/SDK applications and the SDK (please note these are merely illustrations of potential apps, not apps that we intend to ship with Windows 8). The ISOs are linked to from You download with a Windows Live ID (which you might want to use to test out some of the new roaming features).
