If you are a member of Microsoft's DreamSpark program and have access to its premium offerings, you can get your hands on Windows 8 RTM right now as the platform is now available for download; you can find the download here.
Windows 8 will be available for all consumers to purchase on October 26th and is Microsoft's most ambitious release in the past decade. With a new direction that is blending the tablet and traditional desktop experience, Microsoft is betting on the future and not the past.
With a low initial entry price of $39.99, Microsoft is looking for quick consumer adoption to help boost user rates of its latest OS and also give developers a target market with the new Microsoft Store.
