Windows 8 RTM is Available for Evaluation

imageIf you haven’t been living under a rock, then you probably heard of Windows 8. It’s new, it’s different, it moved your cheese to a different time zone.

And it’s freely available for a 90 day evaluation!

You can download the Enterprise edition here.

A few things to note before you try it:

  • This evaluation cannot be upgraded!
  • You will have to install a retail version of Windows when the trial period is over! Don’t say I didn’t warn you…
  • To revert to a previous version of Windows (say, Win-7), you’ll have to do a clean install.

You may wish to try installing it on a virtual machine for evaluation. Personally, I’m partial to Virtual Box, though you can of course create one with any platform.

I’ve already installed it. So far, so good. Everything but my Dell’s fingerprint reader works. Grrrr….
