Any one else planning on running the Windows 8 Release Preview?
I got a notice today that the latest public version of Windows 8 is available. This is the final release preview. It's likely what you see in this release will mirror the bits released this fall, unless there is a major glitch. While technically a beta version, this is expected to pretty close to polished and finished. It replaces the earlier developer preview version.
You can take a look at http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-8/download
The default option for download is a system checker that test whether the hardware is compatible and selects the appropriate version for download. If you search a bit, you'll find the options for the full ISO files. They are about 3.3GB for the x64 version, 2.8 GB for the x32-bit build. See http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-8/faq
In general I've found Win-8 desktop to be stable and easy to use.
Still not to sure if Metro is my cup of tea.
