    I assume that if we are using a language that its not from the 13 in preview, we just need to change it (on control panel) to english for example, or this wouldn't work?

    also, i assume that we're going to get the .iso in the same day as the store download?!

    cool thread FaiKee, keep it updated

    I plan on doing a clean install from 8 to 8.1 anyway, so essentially, there should be no issue at all with this? I just grab the iso, put it on a DVD or flash drive, install with that product key, and just win?

    Edit: My locale is enUS also

    I guess it might work if you have installed the english LPK. I'll get it a try in my lab tomorrow.

    Just out of curiosity...
    How did you got access to the preview earlier?

    Is this through Microsoft Connect or something?

    Thanks FaiKee.
    I thought the update notification would just pop up automatically on June 26th. Now i know i'll have to download an update package.

    Thanks again.

    And one more question:
    If i do a clean install of the preview (by burning the ISO to a DVD or flash drive)...
    Will i be able to upgrade to the RTM?

    That's because i prefer a clean install over an upgrade...
    No left-overs from the earlier OS.

    I dont think you can upgrade 8.1 to 8. That would be a backwards upgrade (downgrade)

    I rather do clean installs as well (wipe and load heh). Upgrades tend to get messy sometimes.

    What happens when the preview is over. Will us guys using a legit win 8 key be able to just upgrade to the final through the store?
