I’ve been using Microsoft’s Windows 8 Consumer Preview for the last week or so now, running it in Virtualbox on my XP machine. In fact, I’m working with it right now as I type this.

I’m a big fan of chess tactics puzzles of the kind found in the Chess Tactics Server, but what I didn’t know, after having Fritz installed on my PC for over two years, was that I could use Fritz to trawl through a database of games, spot blunders and turn them into Tactics problems.
