DBGallery on Windows 8

Windows 8 looks great. If feels fun and interesting to use. Even then many are likely to shun it at first. But the great new Metro interface, combined with it being easy to get to the old familiar looking Windows interface, means it's likely going to be a winner. The next reason it is likely to succeed: the interface works on desktops, laptops, phones, and tablets (including Microsoft's new Surface tablet, announced the day this blog was written). So it's likely the new Windows 8 interface, called Metro, is going to be around for a while.

Does DBGallery work on Windows 8? Absolutely! (Although not likely on a Windows 8 phone.) Below are a few screenshots of it working on the Windows 8 Consumer Preview.

Final Windows 8 Available for Download

Microsoft made the final release of Windows 8 available for download this week. Its is a developer evaluation version which will need to be uninstalled at some point to install a purchased version, but this will provide the full and final feel of Windows 8: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/evalcenter/jj554510.aspx

DBGallery runs nicely on this final release as well.

Cheers,
