Too soon to be looking at any preview builds. I expect MS to dog food that build for a bit before they release it to the public and there have been no reports of this going on yet.


The Preview Build (whatever it ends up being), should be done fairly soon, within the next few weeks, that way it can be shipped off to Q&A before June's release.

Haha well I have been using ReFS on a few select Server 2012 instances so its not really anything new to me but its great to see support in Windows 8, even for just formatting removable media!

I wonder if they'll allow it to be the FS on the OS volume at some point but right now I don't know of the benefits it has over NTFS.

I see Computer Management is still using ancient icons and design.

So I guess my hope that 8.1 would get rid of some of the legacy icons and design is not going to happen.

Dunno but since they have paid plans for up to 100GB right now they might offer a new plan for Win8 users like carbonite does, I forget the price for carbonite per month but it'd be a good option.

Well pictures don't count towards your quota either. In any case, I'd pay for this. I hope that's exactly what it is!
