Today Microsoft released the Windows 8.1 Preview! I went ahead and updated my Surface RT to Windows 8.1, it took about an hour for the upgrade to complete. So far it has been very good, I am writing the blog post from my Surface 8.1 RT Word app and like the new tile sizes, more centralized settings and the biggest and best thing is that OUTLOOK DESKTOP CLIENT is now running on my Surface RT!!!!!!!!!

Another big announcement today from TechEd Europe is that now all TechNet Subscribers can provision an Office 365 Tenant with 5 E3 licenses. As an MVP I am privileged to be granted a 25 E3 Tenant but just to verify I went ahead and provisioned my TechNet Tenant and it went great!
