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!

Why down-vote this person? Too many Winblows lovers here, isn't it?

I agree with what you said, so I up-voted you.

f--k Windows, Linux for life.

Yeahh....
Linux is great. For me, I use Visual Studio 2010 every day for my education needs. I could run linux and write php, sadly if I did, then there would be no help from my school at all... No support.
As I said. Linux is great. Sadly there is no vs for linux. So I need to run win7.
I use Win7, VS2010, SQL 2008r2 enterprise, photoshop cs4 and so on... So... Win8 is bad for my computer.
I'll stick with Win7.

You know, those things will likely run without issues under Win8 too...

You're quite disconnected with reality, little child (seriously, "Winblows"?), if you think the problem of this site is too many Windows lovers (hence presumably also too few OSS circle-jerkers).

And "Linux for life" sounds a bit like a sentence...
