I would not recommend downloading a preview build of an operating system to play games on. Be very cautious of driver and hardware issues.

Ya I was wondering that myself. I downloaded but haven't installed until I read some more reviews. I was thinking of making a dual boot system to easily go back to 7 if any issues.

I'm amazed at how many people are interpreting this builders preview as a new OS to install and use daily... It's meant for builders of programs to be able to get started on their ideas...

They are nice enough to let anyone try it out, though! But we gotta remember the purpose....

Exactly! This is a developers preview, not a beta, but a pre-beta. that said, I have it installed in a VM using VirtualBox. I haven't even tried installing games because I know there will just be too many hassles to deal with at this stage of the game. I am however testing some development tools and minor apps. There probably isn't much to mention that hasn't been said in all the articles floating around.

If you want to see the main screen upon login, I have it listed in another post.
