Welcome to Episode 54 of the Observed Tech PODCAST.
This is our special Windows 8 Release Preview show where we talk about the Windows 8 Release Preview version of Microsoft’s next operating system which just became publicly available yesterday. This will be the final public release of the OS prior to it being Released to Manufacturing (RTM) sometime this fall and then ultimately being available to everyone on retail shelves and on new computers.
We wrap up with a look at the past week on WindowsObserver.com.
