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!

Unless you buy a original Windows 8 medium I guess.

Still, it's a bit weird the mighty Microsoft can't code something that allows you to turn a time limited demo in to a full product, because well, it already is a full product with a timer.

My guess is the timer is made so hacker proof that it just can't be removed/deactivated without blowing up the computer.
