The Building Windows 8 Team just tweeted from their official (@BuildWindows8) account that the Windows 8 Consumer Preview, which was just released yesterday morning for download, has been grabbed around the world more than 1 million times.


So I would like to go back to my post from a couple of days ago and modify my guess about the number of downloads the Consumer Preview will have.  I now think that number is going to be well past six million based on these initial numbers.

What do you think?
