    What difference does that make? It's not relevant to this thread.

    very relevant, it's you the first who start to talk about something who don't exist. This is not Win 8 RTM evaluation version, it's " Windows 8 Enterprise 90-day evaluation" it's not relevant how they call it on blog, what is relevant is the way Microsoft call it.

    "it's not relevant how they call it on blog, what is relevant is the way Microsoft call it."

    Yes, it is entirely relevant, because when people read those blogs it leads to confusion among the general populace, and so when someone asks a question, you have to take that into account. Which I did.


    Time for a re-cap:


    The OP asked a slightly ambiguous question, I asked for clarification, he clarified. The end, right? Except the entire time I've had two people attempt to "prove me wrong," despite my not making one incorrect assertion apart from the misstatement (two pages in, mind you) re: the enterprise trial, which I immediately acknowledged with "I stand corrected."

    You want a recap;

    to the OP if it's free it's not the final version..... ( or the legal one )

    is that enough simple NaySayer

    Yes, that's succinct and to the point - and free of ambiguity, unlike the OP's question.
