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!

I would do a real upgrade instead; installing linux ;)
I will not waste my time or money on windows.
"Where is the power off button?" roflol

Yeah, because present primary Linux DEs are so much better... (the one primarily used in ~serious scenarios also moving away from power button, maybe even pioneering that)

For most people, Windows is likely less costly - they just get it with new machines, which is used until it dies & with the same Windows version, anyway.
