Windows 8 Release Preview arrives

Its here. The long awaited final preview of the next Microsoft O/S. So whats it likely to contain. Mainly more representative apps than the “blocky” ones in the consumer preview.- more drivers for more new hardware and better compatibility with existing hardware due to the feedback from the previous “release”. What the new release hints at is a September / October launch in time for the holiday period and that the marketing is likely to start ramping up from here.

Time to get your hands dirty with whats coming next – and to get ready for the support calls this will generate when it hits. So off to prepare some hardware now.
