Get Windows 8 Release Preview and Visual Studio 2012 RC Now!
Great news! We have just released the long awaited Release Preview of Windows 8 and the highly anticipated release candidate of Visual Studio 2012 (formerly Visual Studio 11)! These are MAJOR milestones for Microsoft and is setting the stage for a complete re-imagination of Windows and providing a solid development foundation upon which to build next generation applications for a whole new family of devices to include the latest Windows Phone platform as well as a soon-to-be-launched onslaught of fantastic Windows 8-slate and tablet devices.
No other company on the planet has made the types of investments Microsoft has made in its client technologies, development and management tools, and cloud-based services. We’re betting a lot on the upcoming releases and I for one am extremely excited and optimistic.
