I'm guessing using Windows 8 is out of the picture, so try some Linux?
I don't really the time to dabble in Linux, but I'm definitely thinking of giving Windows 8 a try. That would indeed be an interesting article.

If I can find some consumer apps that make use of the new instructions, I'll definitely give those a try as well.
