I am absolutely thrilled to be honest! I can't wait to get the final build and be done with it and be able to use it without having to worry about formatting for the next test build. lol

Wish I still had my technet. It would be fun to play around with. Oh well. Looks like I'm going to have to skip 8. Darn it.

I'm so excited and I just can't hide it
I'm about to lose control and I think I like it
I'm so excited and I just can't hide it
And I know I know I know I know I know I want W8.


My apology to the Pointer Sisters

Just wanted to give you a heads up. I'm not sure about what your long term usage of the products you download from technet is, but they have changed how long you can uses the keys. Once your subscription expires so does your keys.

Question about that, in the event that the keys do expire, would I be able to just buy a key online and activate my software?

I don't see why you should not be able to do. I don't think they give you special technet versions.

Thanks. I'm hoping Microsoft doesn't deactivate the keys but it's nice to know that I am not SOL in case they do. In any event though, income permitting, I plan on renewing my Technet sub anyways.
