Today at MWC in Barcelona, Spain, Microsoft took the stage to talk about Windows 8, the companies dramatic change to it’s Windows PC operating system. Combined with the new “Metro UI” that has graced the Window Phone 7 OS and over 100,000 changes, it is easily the most drastic change Windows has seen in some time.

Will it connect with average customers? We’ll have to wait and see, but if you’re tempted to try it out for yourself, head over to Microsoft download page and give it shot for free, at least until it’s release for retail.
