According to the Windows 8 development team tweet on twitter, the new Windows 8 Consumer Preview download has hit the figure of 1 Million in less than 24 hours of its release yesterday. It clearly indicates that there is a lot of interest in Microsoft’s next major operating system. The number of downloads is not exactly record-shattering but it obviously indicates that many are looking forward to get this new OS into their future devices, most probably tablet PCs.

Windows 8 is an outstanding departure from Windows 7 including the new Metro UI, which most people will recognize from Windows Phone 7. Still due with an ARM version and wide compatibility, the new PC and tablet platform will surely make wider Microsoft’s ecosystem, with WP8.
