I'm getting error 503 when I try to download the kb file so hopefully they're doing some stuff.

edit: nope

Meh, I wish they made a start button that actually was somehow on screen in the desktop so you didn't have to go back to metro....I guess start8/startisback/classic shell are all still very relevant.

Running W8 X64 Enterprise here, does that mean I have to use an ISO? Will I keep all my files etc?

I'd really recommend that people here DON'T install this just yet...Microsoft tends to throw users of its preview OS's into the wind - they're mostly targeted at IT administrators so they can try them out on a spare machine, find out if their software implodes on it, and then later just reimage the machine when the official version comes out. Any settings/files transferability is a nice bonus, not a requirement of these releases (making it perfectly transferable would take development time, so they don't bother until it's done)

They make a pretty big point about backing up to a thumb drive or whatever before proceeding. Anyone installing a preview/beta of an operating systems should be doing this anyway. I hope people on here are smart enough to know what they are doing and back-up appropriately.
