Windows 8 Release Preview Downloads Online

Microsoft has just made available the Windows 8 Release Preview downloads. News broke earlier that Microsoft had the intention to release the new development version of Windows 8 today, and not in the first week of June 2012 as originally assumed.

All downloads are available as ISO images and in form of the Windows 8 Upgrade Assistant. You find all ISO links of the Windows 8 Release Preview on this website. We have added them all below for your convenience. Please note that all versions share the same product key, and that other language editions are not available.
