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.
Nothing on Technet yet. Come to think of it I don't recall seeing the developer preview one there either.

    Using non-RAID on purpose as I find it too fussy and temperamental.

Agree.
Learning from most cases on WCP fake download recently. Best to stick to official site of MS. Isn't too painful to wait for more hours I guess. ;)
