The Developer Preview – released during BUILD last summer – topped the 500,000 download mark in 24 hours, while the Consumer Preview – released in February – topped one million downloads within the first 24 hours of its release. It should be interesting to see the traction of the Release Preview; should the pattern continue, perhaps it will surpass 2 million downloads within the first 24 hours of going live?
