Microsoft's RTM build of their forthcoming OS, Windows 8, is now officially available for MSDN and TechNet subscribers. This is the same version that will reach the general public on October 26. Microsoft Software Assurance customers will get their hands on the RTM tomorrow, and Volume License customers without Software Assurance will be able to purchase the OS through Microsoft Volume License Resellers on September 1.

Microsoft have also offered some good faith here to the general public, offering up a 90-day trial version of Windows 8 Enterprise. This is available in both 32- and 64-bit versions and are available to anyone as a free ISO image in many languages. This version, however, cannot be upgraded to a full retail version once the 90-day period expires.

 

The Enterprise version of Windows 8 includes all of the features found in the Pro edition, plus some business-based options like Windows To Go, DirectAccess, BranchCache, and RemoteFX virtualization. What are your thoughts on the OS so far? Are you going to hit up that 90-day trial?
