Windows 8 download from Technet

Late last night in the Netherlands Microsoft released the download of Windows 8 for TechNet subscribers. I’ve downloaded the versions that where available to me. Only thing I noticed is that Microsoft keeps limiting the number of keys you can request for testing.

I build and rebuild my labs on a fairly regular basis. Problem is that my labs are more then 180 days online so you get those annoying messages that your software isn’t licensed and what not more. I know Microsoft is scared of users installing these versions on regular machines for daily use but restricting it to 3 keys is just plain stupid. In the past you could request up to 14 keys per version and now your stuck with 3. Come on Microsoft, I hope you come to your senses and make more keys available to use testers and early adapters of your software for testing various software.

Now that I’m done with my complaint I’m going to check out Win 8 in combination with Citrix Receiver and other software soon. Keep an eye out for more posts to come.
