Yes I did, installed it on real hardware, dumped my W8 RP install that was expired.

Still a lot of W8 stuff in it, incl most of the graphics.

I read:
that EI.CFG has been injected into the ISO.

so it isn't a completely clean release as minor as this addition is.
*But neither were the early W8 releases.

Paul has some info on this leaked build

*It is a alpha build remember, so it still has some pages that say "Page under construction".

Microsoft announces BUILD 2013, confirms “Blue” update details

Microsoft has today announced that BUILD 2013, their annual developer conference that has been taking place since the introduction of Windows 8 back in 2011, will be taking place this year at the Moscone Center in San Francisco between the days of June 26th and June 28th. Registration will open on April 2nd at 9am PST and tickets are known to go fast, so be sure to set your alarms.

Perhaps more excitingly, Microsoft has confirmed for the very first time some of the finer details of their upcoming wave of “Blue” updates, which Windows Blue is (obviously) a significant part of. In a post made by Corporate Vice President of Corporate Communications at Microsoft Frank Shaw, Microsoft confirmed that “Blue” is an initiative led by product leaders of various groups at Microsoft to coordinate functionality between different products at Microsoft.

Most notably, Shaw confirmed that Blue is part of a “new normal” at Microsoft – namely, Microsoft has switched to a continuous development cycle to get new devices, apps, and services to their customers without the need to wait for major releases, something we’ve seen evidence of recently.

It appears from what I have read Blue may be renamed Windows 8.1 & (plan B) Windows 8.2

I have tested the leaked build a bit, here is something NIC in the Windows 8 builds.

Can it be activated, have a key, but activation page says under construction. Have it installed on Acer Extensa 5620z, working quite well.
