If you already running Windows 8 Consumer Preview, you can go and download WordPress for Windows 8 from the Windows Store.

I tried installing the for Windows 8 app but failed because I couldn’t access the Windows Store as it requires a minimum screen resolution of 1024×768 and the netbook I was using only has 1024×600. So I’ll have to wait until I have installed Windows 8 Consumer Preview on a different machine before I can try out the app.

Anyone tried the Windows 8 Consumer Preview or the for Windows 8 app? Please share your thoughts.
