Windows 8 was so bad it's skipping Windows 9.

You can download a preview of Windows 10 here:
http://news.yahoo.com/download-preview-windows-10-105110101.html

That will be useful for developers who want to make sure their apps work on it
(for what it's worth, all of my apps seem to run on Windows 10 without issue).

How are you people installing it? The 64-bit USA ISO just has errors in VirtualBox when I try to install it.

I had problems too so ended up using VMware.

So far it seems to be the same as Win8 without the hassle of bypassing the Metro screen.

You caught me! :-[ I removed my post because after I asked, I tried again and got it to work.

I'm not sure what the solution was, to be honest.

I tried it with the 32-bit ISO and it warned me about needing to enable PAE, so I enabled it and got to the setup screen. Then I mounted the 64-bit ISO and rebooted my VM and it worked. So maybe I needed to enable PAE to get it to work?
