    I would steer clear of those links, as they are most likely to be fakes. 2.13GB for a 64-bit OS should set alarm bells ringing. I'm waiting for the official releases.

    I would as well since someone didn't provide an actual MS page but a download link. The Developer Preview is still seen posted at MSDN. I'll be looking over the TechNet site next for any info to find there. Not Twitter or some blog site in order to confirm the release.
