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!

Would you stop beating that dead horse? Intel is the one who you should blame for your small (it's not like the laptops will stop working) issue.

The benefits of supporting such old (and pretty much purposefully castrated by Intel) chips don't justify the effort, when virtually all Windows OS are "sold" with new machines.
