For those running a Mac or a pc running something other the Windows 8 or 8.1 you can still develop with Kinect v2 SDK. The Kinect Team have put together a great post on a few alternatives here.

My favorite is Windows To Go – Which allows you to set up on an external HDD .  The Kinect team have given a great step by step guide on how to set it all up.  There’s also a great list of recommended USB HDD hardware here to help.

This is going to be great for courses, hackathons etc when people don’t have access to Win 8 for their own machine aswell as those die hard Mac and Win7 people.
