BREAKING NEWS: While I was away, the Windows 8 bits hit TechNet and MSDN!

http://mschnlnine.vo.llnwd.net/d1/inetpub/kevinremde/KROmniture.htmGee.. you go out to the gym for a couple of hours and come back and lo-and-behold the Windows 8 released (RTM) bits become available for download for TechNet and MSDN subscribers!  So if you subscribe, go to the site and get ‘em while they’re hot!

“What about other folks?  When can I buy it?”

If you’re a Microsoft Software Assurance customer, you’ll be able to download the bits on August 16, 2012 (yes.. tomorrow).  If you’re a Volume License customer without Software Assurance, you’ll be able to purchase Windows 8 through your Microsoft Volume License Resellers on September 1st, 2012.

“And what about the rest of us?”

October 26th.  That’s when it will hit store shelves, and also become available on new and exciting hardware such as the Microsoft Surface.
