Hi all

For those of you with a Microsoft Action Pack Subscription, note that the public Windows 8 fully localized is ready for download.

Double-click an ISO file and it opens like a zip folder. 
Right-click it and select Burn Disk Image to burn to a DVD. 
Can't be easier.

Also, the VS2012 version included is now the Premium level and now does include LightSwitch!

For all those wanting to test and develop with the new windows you can just
go to the Microsoft virtual labs to get some first hand experience without
having to have Win8 installed. 

How major an application that can be developed in this environment is
anyone's guess but I am sure there are some limitations and "gochas".

via IE.)

There are development samples in C# and HTML/CSS/JavaScript.
