After nearly a year of pre-beta and beta testing, the final build for Windows 8 is now available. What started off as a raw build in the form of the Windows 8 Developer’s Preview was later upgraded to the Windows 8 Consumer Preview (Beta), followed by the Release Preview and now the final build has been made available on download on a 90-Day Trial Period basis. You can download this build from the links given at the end of this post.
The Windows 8 team has begun releasing the Windows 8 to OEM and manufacturing partners. In other words, the next milestone will be the availability of PCs loaded with the latest Windows operating system by October 26, 2012.
The new version of Windows 8 has come with a number of changes including search support within the apps store, a new Bing app, personalization tattoos for the Metro interface, new interface for the People app and sadly, the removal of the Aero glass effect.
