Windows 8 tips and discoveries from around the Internet

With the release of Windows 8 Consumer Preview the interest and exploration has really gotten underway. imageBe aware that this release is a “preview” or “beta” version and most of the Metro style apps provide just hints of what is coming.

Enthusiasts have been exploring the nooks and crannies and sharing their discoveries.

I too, have been exploring and sharing here with more to come.

Here are some blog posts with interesting and useful information that I found particularly interesting.
