One complaint I have is the lack of a Print Screen key function. As an ingrained user of SnagIt (I know you can’t install programs on the Surface) I find the lack of a decent screen capturing a body blow. I know you can use Snipping Tool but this is a poor substitute for SnagIt. On a regular PC running Windows 8 you...

Here’s a video from winbeta.org showing the Windows 8 setup experience. It shows a very straightforward install that doesn’t take very long. It also shows the new boot logo as well as the new and interesting intro video that quickly teaches you how to access the Charms Bar. Enjoy!

Very cool news. I had posted earlier that Windows 8 was available to MSDN and Technet subscribers. Well if you don’t have one of those memberships but want to take the software for a ride, you’re in luck! Microsoft have released a Trial version of Windows 8. It’s a fully functioning version of Windows 8 Enterprise and...

Windows 8 is now available for download on both Technet and MSDN. 4 builds are available on Technet: Windows 8 Enterprise (x86) – DVD (English) SHA1: FEFCE3E64FB9EC1CC7977165328890CCC9A10656 Windows 8 Enterprise (x64) – DVD (English) SHA1: 4EADFE83E736621234C63E8465986F0AF6AA3C82 Windows 8 Pro VL (x86) – DVD...

Today is a big day for millions of Technet and MSDN subscribers. You should be able to download the final versions of Windows 8 via your subscription access at some point today. This applies only to developers and IT professionals. August 15th: Developers will be able to download the final version of Windows 8 via...

The (allegedly) Russian leaker WZOR has leaked 4 more versions of Windows 8 RTM onto the web in addition to the Windows Server 2012 RTM leak. The editions leaked are: Windows 8 Enterprise x86 Windows 8 Enterprise x64 Windows 8 Pro x86 Windows 8 Pro x64 These are supposedly “untouched” (bootable) images from...

The good folks at Winbeta got their hands on a copy of Windows 8 RTM and decided to make a silent video about it. No lie, it’s silent. Here it is. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9akf69l4A84 If you are wondering what Windows 8 actually looks like (or will look like), here it is. Source

So I had spoken earlier about Microsoft including instructional cues on the screen during the Windows 8 RTM setup. Well, Paul Thurrott was kind enough to make a brief video showing exactly what those cues are. Also interesting – two things: This video seems to be very brief so surely that can’t be the only set of...

It seems that the Windows 8 RTM wallpapers have leaked as well. They are now on the web and look pretty stunning (so they say). We are not leaking to any sources of illegal downloads. Sorry.

The floodgates are about to open. More online images have surfaced (pun intended) of Windows 8 Enterprise N. This is build 9200 and seems to be the genuine RTM. In addition, I spoke about leaks earlier on today. Well they have started now in earnest. I will NOT be linking to any Windows 8 Torrents, Windows 8 Links or...
