Yes – after all the hype and fanfare, Microsoft are releasing the preview build of Windows 8 today via MSDN. You can find out more here.
I’ve had a chance to play with it over the last few months as I’m on the TAP program with my other business Correct Solutions. I can only say that I’m blown away with not only what the desktop version offers, but also the things they’ve been working on for the Windows 8 Server systems too. Long story short – if you are an IT Professional, then you will want to get your hands on this goodness ASAP and start to become familiar with it. It’s not going to be released as a final product tomorrow or anything, but you DO NEED TO GET ACROSS THIS.
