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!

Thanks for the information - I'm really suprised that they don't have a custom system from the ground up with custom hardware where as what it seems is a hodge-podge of off the hardware with a butchered installation of Windows ;)

The cost savings from this approach are enormous.

Besides, hardware companies are rarely good at writing software. The "butchered installation of Windows" might actually be better than whatever they'll come up with.
