Windows 8 available from tomorrow, for some at least


Tomorrow will be an exciting day for some people, who will finally have access to Windows 8 via MSDN & TechNet subscriptions. We've added in the release timeline as a reminder, because the release isn't limited to MSDN and TechNet subscribers, there are other ways to get it before the retail launch on October 26th.
  • August 15th: Developers will be able to download the final version of Windows 8 via your MSDN subscriptions.
  • August 15th: IT professionals testing Windows 8 in organizations will be able to access the final version of Windows 8 through your TechNet subscriptions.
  • August 16th: Customers with existing Microsoft Software Assurance for Windows will be able to download Windows 8 Enterprise edition through the Volume License Service Center (VLSC), allowing you to test, pilot and begin adopting Windows 8 Enterprise within your organization.
  • August 16th: Microsoft Partner Network members will have access to Windows 8.
  • August 20th: Microsoft Action Pack Providers (MAPS) receive access to Windows 8.
  • September 1st: Volume License customers without Software Assurance will be able to purchase Windows 8 through Microsoft Volume License Resellers.
Are you one of the lucky ones with access tomorrow, or can you get it (legally) by other means before October 26th?
