Offical release for MSDN and TechNet subscribers

  • August 15: MSDN and TechNet subscribers will be the first to get access to the new software.
  • August 16: Software Assurance customers and Microsoft Partner Network members will get access to the operating system.

Will be nice to hear some reviews of the real thing, anyone around here a subscriber?

Sadly I can't install it right now as our current VMWare is only 7 and if I installed 8 and broke my machine I'd be booted (rightfully) :D and they took my "spare" machine away some time ago :(

Nice job Microsoft.. Can't even get a download.
Always good to disappoint your most passionate customers...

Just keep trying, took a while for the download manager to present itself for install. Even after the website stopped returning errors long enough to get there...

I believe that they are overloaded. Looks like you'll need to refresh until you get it.

Can someone post the md5 and hash? Curious if it's the same version as the leak from 2 weeks ago

Does anyone know yet if the license keys have the Media Center Pack? Would try myself but can't get in and can't see a separate download for the pack..

Nope no keys and an error when I try to buy the upgrade via the add features link in the control panel.

Got a download to fire finally (Enterprise x64) - no keys (just errors) at this point. Wondering if it's like Win7 and allows you to install without a key and run for 30 days or so ... guess I'll find out soon enough unless I get lucky with the keys.

Well, no media center kills it off for me, I watch TV on it all day and I cant find any love for any other TV app.

I'll play around for a little longer then it looks like back to windows 7 until I can get the media center sorted.

Oh joy! I need Media Center in my environment.. I wonder how long it will take for someone to include it in? The files are probably all mostly identical to those in Windows 7... If I can ever download and install it I'll take a look around..

@Brink, that key apparently doesn't work on the leaked RTM..
