Downloaded JDK 8 today

Project Lambda was merged to the mainline a while back but b106 is the official developer preview release and (depending on how you look at things) it was actually released on schedule. My main interest beyond lamba expessions is how the JRE performs with the new metaspace. Naturally Mark has a few forewords to say about the new JDK8 build, go get yours!
