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 will give members of the public a hassle free and no commitment chance to install and try Windows 8 before October 26th.

Quick note – don’t get too cozy once you install the Trial version because you’ll have to reinstall it 3 months later once the final version of Windows 8 is released to the public.

Awesome news if you ask me.

  1. good Onura I have downloaded it and am about to setup!!

    • I wish they’d extend the usage time for testers.
      Annoying for it to crash and have to reinstall every 3months.

      • This is great and I’m downloading it now. I wish it was Windows 8 Professional, though. I remember reading something in the past about a change you can make in the Windows registry to extend previous trial versions of Windows to six months, but I don’t remember exactly what it was. Is anyone else familiar with that, or know how to do it?

      • wont need it that long for me!! by then i will have a new windows 8 computer and hopefully a resource disk!
