If you want to download the upcoming Windows Technical Preview for Enterprise (also known as "Windows 9", "Threshold", and now "Windows TH", from Microsoft, get ready for a rather long wait as the files will be on the large size (unless you are lucky enough to have a 1 Gbps connection at home).
Thanks to what was apparently an accidental leak by a Microsoft website employee, we now know not only the download URL for the Windows Technical Preview when it goes live (complete with a tiny screenshot showing the new Start menu), we also know that the 32-bit version of the ISO file will be just over 3GB, while the 64-bit version will be about 4GB.
Microsoft is expected to launch the Windows Technical Preview for Enterprise shortly after it holds a press event in San Francisco on September 30th. Once that happens, people who choose to download the ISO file will have to place it on a DVD or USB flash drive and then click the 'setup.exe" program to begin the installation process on their PC.
Of course, since this will likely be lots of bugs in this build, many people might want to go back to their previous version of Windows after testing the Technical Preview. Microsoft warns that they will have to do so via the recovery media that came with their PC as the onboard recovery partition on their hard drive won't be able to do that job.
When do you think Microsoft will pull the trigger on the Windows Technical Preview for Enterprise download?
