Well, I'm sitting at Windows 8 CP on my EliteBook 8540w and it's running very nicely thank you! More on the install experience soon, but I just wanted to call out that we have IT Camps running in Brisbane and Melbourne next week around the subject areas of Datacenter Virtualization and Datacenter Migration. We still have spots left in both locations, so think about coming along, it's a fun packed day of information and hands-on labs. Jeff Alexander actually blogged earlier today on this exact topic, so rather than reinvent the wheel, you can find all the information here.
