Windows 8 CP usage more than double that of Windows 7 beta →∞ Fri, 20 Apr 2012 · Comments
Pretty impressive. Definitely shows just how big and important Windows still is.
By the way: When the Windows 7 beta was released Microsoft’s servers crashed. No such issues with the Windows 8 Consumer Preview, on the other hand.
However, I think the W8 CP isn’t as stable as the W7 beta was. Maybe my mind is just playing a trick on me here, but I do have some issues with it (text rendering is inconsistent, sometimes random taskbar entries pop up that go away once you click them, and, obviously, all those Metro-style app previews are still very buggy) that I didn’t have back in 2009. I guess I just forgot those…
