Windows Microsoft has made Windows 8's final release available to MSDN and TechNet subscribers, so if you are one of those - have fun. The 90-day trial has also been released, so us mere mortals can have a go at it as well. The evaluation version is Windows 8 Enterprise, so it contains a number of features regular users normally won't see. As far as I can tell - it's a bit unclear - the trial version cannot be upgraded to a final version a few months down the line. Happy testing!

Is there anything you really need that it does noticably faster or better than Windows 7?
Going from XP or Vista to 7 is a move I can understand. Going from 7 to 8 .. not so much.

Ideas?


Well, looking at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Features_new_to_Windows_8 the only thing on that whole list that matters to me is faster boot, nothing else; I don't care about integration with Microsoft-accounts, about Windows Store, the new family safety - features or anything else on that list. Increased performance wasn't mentioned on that list and that's the second thing that matters to me. Basically, not much.

But really, you should look at that list and see if there is anything that matters to you. No one else can quite tell you what you need or don't need.
