    Yeah customizing the UI will give you an insight into Windows 8 but not d real deal. But its its still a nice way to know what windows 8 holds fr us. I once tried to download windows 8 consumer preview but couldnt finish the installation because it was too large for the internet connection speed. had to continue wif windows 7.Nice 1 though
