Looks like the new stuff will only show up on DreamSpark at the end of the month.

Thanks!

My technet account long expired. I had the basic (Standard now) version. If I renew or just get a new standard subscription all together, will I have access to W8? Based on the chart, I won't have access to Enterprise or the ability to download software for evaluation. Would it be worth it to go for Professional then?

I re-install Windows all the time, before 90 days. So if this can be activated every install, it looks like a free version of Windows 8 to me.

Edit: Looks like its not possible as you have to register and activate with your Microsoft account.
