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!

No need to pass Windows 8

First thought was to pass Windows 8 due to its dreadful interface on desktop but as I gave it another thought I've realized it is easy to hack Windows 8 and write and add-on to provide classic start menu & interface.

So when someone will release such an add-on either for free or for 5-30€, I will be happy to switch.

In fact I didn't research but after a quick google I've found: http://www.howtogeek.com/107711/how-to-get-the-classic-start-menu-b... so I will probably switch to Windows 8.
