Download Windows 10 Technical Preview

Microsoft has released a tenchical preview version for Windows 10.

Remember, trying out an early build like this can be risky. That’s why we recommend that you don’t install the preview on your primary home or business PC. Unexpected PC crashes could damage or even delete your files, so you should back up everything.

After you install Windows Technical Preview, you won’t be able to use the recovery partition on your PC to go back to your previous version of Windows.

Keep in mind that this version has Windows updates on by default and they can not be disabled. Moreover, Microsoft will collect various information. For more information read Privacy Statements for Windows Technical Preview

Visual Studio 2013 update 3 is now available.

Microsoft has released update 3 for Visual Studio 2013. The new update includes the latest software updates, feature additions, and bug fixes.

For more detailed information about the new changes and the current known issues visit http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2933779#MT4.

You can download the ISO file directly (4.0GB) from Microsoft’s website. I would recommend using the online installer instead if you have limited bandwidth as it will simply download only the information you will need instead of just everything.

Visual Studio 2014 Preview is now available

Microsoft has released a CTP (Community Technology Preview) version for their Visual Studio software.

This version is intended only for people that want to have access to the early stages of the new Visual Studio version and want to give their feedback to Microsoft. Since this is an early state of Visual Studio 2014 is it recommended to install the software in a virtual machine to avoid conflicts with any other versions of Visual Studio you might already have installed.
