With windows 8 release due in 2012, you can have a play with the new version for free before it’s released.
You will need to download the Release To Developers version which is free to install. This is not a Beta version and the software may change before the final release, also I would not recommend installing it on anything other than a test PC as it is not an upgrade and once installed you cannot revert to a previous installation of Windows. If you do not have a spare PC with the right specifications you could always install it on a virtual machine for free and play with it there without sacrificing a current windows installation.
