NVIDIA Win8 Drivers

NVIDIA now offers new version 302.82 HQL-certified Windows 8 drivers. Word is: "This is a WHQL-certified GeForce driver to be used only with the Microsoft Windows 8 Release Preview. This driver should not be used with Windows Vista or Windows 7. This driver offers full support for the new Windows 8 display driver model WDDM 1.2." Thanks HARDOCP.

The unfortunate interaction disparities between Metro and Win32 apps combined with Metros limitations will likely make it a non-seller with consumers. I can't really agree that it contains any essentials that make it a worthy upgrade at $150+ over Windows 7 for the average person either, most of the new features are enthusiast trappings and even they will likely balk at some which have third party solutions already.

I don't think its a bad operating system per se, that's kind of a vague generalization anyway but I think its practical usage scenarios are hampered by a rush to market to snap up some iPad marketshare. It's up against businesses that have barely started migrating to Windows 7, competitors who have existing app DBs in the millions, a public enamored with Apple products and a largely indifferent developer/enthusiast market.
