Re: Microsoft: Windows 8 completed

For those who are interested in trying out Windows 8, Microsoft has now released a 90-day trial version of the final product.

A word of caution:  this version will expire in 90 days with no paths to convert to a fully-functional version.  Therefore, use it only for testing and "play" purposes.
