Simple way to check out Windows 8 consumer preview

Boot Camp feature for Friday, March 23, 2012

The Windows 8 consumer preview.  Want to take a look?   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.    Microsoft is making a consumer preview of the new Windows 8 operating system available.     The download is free.   The problem for some folks is,  which computer to put it on.   One of the easiest solutions is to run it on a Mac, using Parallels Desktop 7 software.   Parallels’ senior director of global communication John Uppendahl…

“Parallels has a free trial at Parallels.com/desktop where you can download Parallels for free and check it out.  And once you do we have what’s called the new virtual machine wizard and you just click up under file and new and you can select Windows 8 consumer preview and download it in just a few clicks and we automatically install it for you. ”

In fact you can have Windows 8 running at the same time as your Mac OS with Parallels.  You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
