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!

It'll still have to be wiped as Win 7 won't be able to upgrade and keep the Win 8 apps. Its not really surprising as frankly the few times I've seen an upgrade from Vista to 7 tried it ended up a flaky mess so it'd probably be better to just clean install it anyway.
