At our Build 2013 conference in June, we formally announced the availability of Windows 8.1 Preview and Windows RT 8.1 Preview. If you’re interested in evaluating this pre-release of Windows 8.1 on non-production PCs, you can obtain the Preview bits at http://preview.windows.com.
Although much of the Build conference was targeted towards developers, lots of IT Pros are interested in the ways in which Windows 8.1 will improve enterprise end-user and management scenarios. John Vintzel, Senior Program Manager on the Windows team, delivered a great session on the new features in Windows 8.1 for business organizations. In this article, I’ll provide a summary of John’s session along with a clickable video index to the recording of this session.

Below, I’ve listed some great FREE resources available to help you evaluate Windows 8.1 Preview in your own shop. To evaluate Workplace Join, Work Folders, Selective Wipe, and Web Application Proxy, you’ll also need Windows Server 2012 R2 Preview.
