Starting today, we will extend availability of our current Windows 8.1, Windows 8.1 Pro and Windows Server 2012 R2 RTM builds to the developer and IT professional communities via MSDN and TechNet subscriptions. The Windows 8.1 RTM Enterprise edition will be available through MSDN and TechNet for businesses later this month.
Developers had been asking for this.
You would have thought that they would have learned their lesson on making dickhead moves after the whole XBox One fiasco earlier this year, but yet again, Microsoft has found itself in an “oh shit” moment.
If MS would start focusing more on NOT screwing the customer/developer, then maybe it wouldn’t have so much egg on its face.
