    Ive rolled out the release preview to 40 slates already and it has been received well by teachers and students alike.

    However I dont see us putting it on desktops or normal laptops at all.

    Do i need to do anything to my KMS server to add in the Win8 KMS keys?

    KMS for W7 was already set up when I started here so not really sure...

    I guess you would, when you setup KMS you put in a specific OS KMS key in.

    You will need to install KB2691586 if your KMS server isn't running Windows Server 2012.

    I think the standard thing with any M$ operating system is never adopt it early, most places I know with IT that have changed, didnt use windows 7 until well after the SP1 was released for it, that being said, 8 is another "vista/millenium" operating system in the making I feel from what I have seen, but only time will tell here.
