Microsoft has been pretty quiet about Windows 9 and security around the partners builds has also been tight, although a lot of information leaked in the recent weeks, we haven’t seen the Windows Technical Preview ISO anywhere, until now…
A new Microsoft website went live recently sourcing the place where the download of Windows Technical Preview will go live. While the TechNet Evaluation Center page currently doesn’t offer the early bits of Windows 9 for download, the page is real and eventually it will go live.
Perhaps the most important piece of information are the new screenshots that surfaced about the download page for preview. In the shots below you can see the Microsoft page that reads “Download Windows Technical Preview” with some other details, such as the download ISO sizes. According to the images Microsoft will be making a 32-bit and 64-bit version of the Windows 9 preview with download sizes of 3.16GB and 4.10GB respectively.
Also the screenshots reveals by accident the product key for Windows Technical Preview, that being NKJFK-GPHP7-G8C3K-P6JXR-HQRJR. However, I don’t know if this product key is generic or it’s the key for a particular download.
So much leak information from Microsoft is making me doubt if we’ll have to wait much longer to get the bits. We’re expecting to download the Windows Technical Preview for Enterprises next Tuesday, September 30, but new information suggested it will happen early October. Microsoft is holding a special event next Tuesday, to show off the new operating system and then for sure we will know the specific date to finally download the ISO files for next version of Windows.
