I have no need for Win8 Enterprise, though I'll move from Win7 to Win8 eventually. Is there anything in Evaluation version of Win8 Enterprise that's not in Win8 Standard or Win8 Pro that I could tuck away to use when I get Standard or Pro?


"Furthermore, there is no way to upgrade from the evaluation to a real Windows 8 version. Your only option is to trash the installation." Yikes
