What's the difference between a release preview and a release candidate?

Nothing. They are the same thing.

I have a hunch there will be a Release Candidate as MS has said the Release Preview still has more updates coming.

Release Preview is just the new name for Release Candidate - there will be nothing more until RTM in late July.

I don't think I'll bother with it. I'm going to wait and see how much MS are going to charge for the full version. I'd hate to get really involved in Win8 and then find that the price was way too high.

I'll stay with seven for the time being.

I dont care what they are going to charge, I hate it and I'm going to skip this update.

New Windows boring, release "classic" Windows
Hello, as you have guessed I am new here and I have been using Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit for over a year. I guess I am feeling memories, but it's been getting kind of dry and boring recently. Will or can Microsoft ever release a "classic" Windows-like OS in the future?
