Microsoft offers Windows 8 RTM to everyone

Gregg Keizer | Aug. 16, 2012
As promised, Microsoft today released the final version of Windows 8 to MSDN and TechNet subscribers, and it posted a 90-day evaluation copy of Windows 8 RTM that anyone can download.

If a user downloads and launches the evaluation copy today, it will run until Nov. 12, 2012, about two-and-a-half weeks after Microsoft officially launches Windows 8.

The trial copy of Windows 8 Enterprise must be activated within 10 days of its first launch, but Microsoft said a product key was not required. It is available in Chinese, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese and Spanish.

To download the 90-day try-before-you-buy -- available in 32- and 64-bit versions -- start at this Microsoft website.

The 32-bit trial tips the bit scales at 2.4GB.

Anyone can try out the RTM of Windows 8 for 90 days.
