I just downloaded and installed it yesterday. I had "The Build Tablet" running the developer preview and have been looking forward to this update for a bit. I plan to spend this next weekend running it through it's paces with VS11.

For those of you worried about the "Touch First" style of W8, don't. It's still perfectly usable with a mouse. I actually prefer not to touch the screen so as not to leave fingerprints. It takes a bit to get used to where some things have moved, but other than that it seems solid and responsive (it did in the Dev Preview, and haven't had any problems in the last 24 hours)
GeneralDon't touch my screen! Pin
