here u are :) [link]

i suggest u to download the 32 bit cz for the 64 bit u ll need a 64 bit pc.. for any problem feel free to ask me :)

just to know, u cant install it as a main operation system on yr pc..it has to be installed on a formatted 2nd partition of yr basic hard disk, which has already windows 7 (also 32 bit) on the 1st partition..

hehe yes grimm i got yr point man..thank u..actually i agree..they have to improve all those ideas cz some features are not so good..as a first overall preview things seems to go well but with bugs and some ideas that are not working so good to the public..its a changing period so i think we were waiting for that..we ll see how it goes..i admit it has strong features on it, lets say the whole idea to have feeds on yr desktop, magazines,news and navigate through them is some of those..metroui is a promising style but it needs the appropriate attention and work on it so we can be more satisfied.. + a positive is the whole style with metro..i simply love how they done it (e.g control panel)..eventhough they have to work more also on windows themes to make them more "metro"..not as now..the most negative thing i think that has is that is not customisable..of course we can change backgrounds and orbs with restorator and other hex programs but it was prefered such a utility to be given by microsoft..non customisable start menu, hidden buttons etc. its a strange thing but anw.. :D

not just that...but they built their new Metro API to rule out the need or use of the Gadgets...only to find out they didn't bother to take it out, so they have several overlaying API's that both access Shell and Java...

As well as the new Metro API now creates more temp files in several more locations...i found a html5 app that only displays weather to be about 1gig size...all it does is display animations and weather, omnimo 4 does it without an extra 999mb's

mm..why they prefered it like this then?why the metro api creates all these temp files that use more space? its strange also why that weather anime has 1 gig size..it was easier to make it as omnimo actually..strange really..i didnt know about it

its no big deal, if your not using an older computer with a smaller HDD, but altogether it's still in beta so they are still liable to change. just wait and see!
