    I don't know if everyone gets the same message. I just downloaded the release preview version with the key from the Microsoft website, and I get the same message as you, "The Machine is Permanently Activated." Yet, I have a feeling that it will expire.

    The Windows 8 Release Preview will expire on January 15, 2013.
