Anyone giving it a try with the preview?

I ran a earlier version in a VM on my Mac... interesting... at the time it was still to early to really play with so I killed it.

Ya it's an ISO that you burn to a disc and then can install just like any other OS.

Maybe its downloading the ISO, but like any other windows product it isn't telling me what it is actually doing, it is just doing it. I guess I will find out later after it is finished.
