imageAs you probably saw/heard, yesterday we made the Windows 8 Release Preview available for download. This milestone marks the final development phase prior to RTM (Release To Manufacturing) and it is wonderful to see all of the excitement out there! I’ll admit it, I was one of the very excited people looking forward to this release and did my set of Windows 8 installs last night. Here are a few of the pics I shared yesterday (and the last one seems to be a favorite):

With this release yesterday, I am thought I would share a collection of information, links, resources, and more around the Windows 8 Release Preview for you to use:

I hope you find these resources and information are helpful for you. Speaking of helpful, if you haven’t done so yet, don’t forget that you currently have the opportunity to have your voice heard in my annual review process. It will take you 1-2 minutes (or you can go on for as long as you want) and you can do it completely anonymously if you like (but you don’t have to). I would greatly appreciate your input and feedback on my performance.

Did you find this information helpful? If so, you may want to make sure you are utilizing all of the areas I share information online, such as:

Get the Microsoft Partner Info Mobile App and get access to the latest from all of those plus: product teams, MPN teams, Microsoft News and hundreds more resources here at Microsoft right on your phone:
