  • I have been trying to reach MSDN online conceirge chat and this is their reply till now. It is now 16:35 IST.

    Eric: Thanks for waiting. Windows 8 will be released on MSDN on Aug 15th. The date should be based on Pacific time.  However, we have not got any information when Windows Server 2012 final version will be available for MSDN.

    Eric: I'd recommend you to subscribe to the RSS feed of "MSDN Subscriber Downloads" so that you could be informed as soon as this product is made available:


    Eric: It is 4:02 AM in Pacific Time.  So you may need to wait for a few hours.

    I know that we have been waiting for months so waiting for few hours even if it is Midnight IST i don't mind waiting :) Anyway it is our Independence Day :)
