We are only a few days away from Microsoft's public timeline that Windows 8 will hit RTM in the first week of August and on that note, Windows 8 licensing has shown up in the Volume License Service Center
. This is good news for those of individuals who have access to this center as it indicates that the RTM of Windows 8 should be landing very soon.
There is still no timeline on when Windows 8 will hit Technet or other Microsoft developer channels but we suspect that it will be shortly after RTM is officially announced by Microsoft. Don't expect it to be a near instant posting to these channels but it should arrive well before general availability.
