At BUILD today Microsoft just announced that the same version of Windows 8 Developer Preview we've been using on Samsung tablets for the past day will be available at 8 PM PST this evening. More details and the ISO will be available on dev.windows.com for anyone with a Live ID to download and try out.
The platform preview will receive updates as development progresses, and has no mandatory activation.

davepermen - Tuesday, September 13, 2011 - linkguess I'll have to get up early. Problem is, how to find sleep right now, after this exciting presentation?

Aikouka - Tuesday, September 13, 2011 - linkGiven being released as an ISO, I assume this build will be for x86 only? While probably infeasible at this point, an ARM release would be interesting since it seems the biggest take-away from this release is the Metro interface. I could finally put that TouchPad to good use. ;)
dagamer34 - Tuesday, September 13, 2011 - linkx64 with sample apps and developer tools, and x86 or x64 for just the build with the sample apps.
