    I take it you're not going to have an early start in the morning? My alarm goes off at 5:15, only snag is it's for me to get ready for work.

    For anybody that didn't watch the keynote - This is fully enabled with no activation, they will also be providing updates as and when it needs/they have then.

    Also the release path will be:- Dev preview -> Beta -> RC -> RTM -> GA
