    actually they can make the bits public and only give those people the key.
    but with 1700USD there should be some kind of hardware, you'll need a tablet to test your touch apps right ?
    they were giving out Kinect at MIX IIRC.

    Thats also what i said, worst case scenario to avoid the Developer Preview from leaking, they just gonna hand out ARM based Slate which isn't really so unrealistic, after all, W8 is all about touch :) instead of a DVD/HDD

    in my opinion Windows 8 will be rubbish so...... M$ expect that everyone is going to buy a tablet PC(useless, new cell phones do the same and are smaller...) or a19- 21" touch screen monitor for the half end of 2012?
    It will be more sense develop a new OS working very well and fast on every computer, and develop a Windows 8 Tablet version working for touch gestures.....

    I imagine my everyday work with my PC's with a tablet user interface working on it with my finger(have to change all monitors??... my LCD 32" that is 3m from my sofa???...or use excel with fingers...:wallbash: ) or mouse...... i'm going to get mad.....

    Let's wait and see if Windows 8 will turn in Old Vista....

    I like 7989 very well, it can be a 7 SP2?

    Isn't that video from an old build? It still has rounded corners (7989 was square)
