You probably want to try out the preview release—and you can. Starting at 8PM today, Seattle time, you can download all of the code that attendees at BUILD received. This includes 32 or 64 bit x86 builds, with or without development tools. The releases also include a suite of sample/SDK applications and the SDK (please note these are merely illustrations of potential apps, not apps that we intend to ship with Windows 8). The ISOs are linked to from http://dev.windows.com. You download with a Windows Live ID (which you might want to use to test out some of the new roaming features).

Ah, I didn't realize they were releasing a version so soon. I thought it was just the SDK, samples, tools, etc.

Nope you get a fully featured no activation version at some point within the next 12 hours.

So the version WITH dev tools will have them integrated with the build and you do the dev on there? No writing the code on my physical machine?

The Win8 build they're releasing (the dev preview build) includes the Win8 OS, samples, SDKs, and Visual Studio. You do all of your dev and testing on that machine, either physical (if you install it on a real machine) or virtual (if you install it into a VM). Obviously to do touch testing and such you'd need a touch-capable machine, but the rest could probably be done either in a physical or virtual machine.

I do notice at the bottom it says it won't have everything shown this morning in the keynote.

Correct - the build is a preview, not a beta or RC. It will only have what is necessary to start testing and building applications. From what I understand, we won't get a full OS release to test until the first beta, similar to the Win7 test cycles.

In the keynote earlier they said it had everything.
