    1. Release Preview in this case is the same as RC. Consumer Preview would've been Beta, and I would say that Developer Preview might've been Alpha or an early Beta.
    2. This Release Preview is freely downloadable from Microsoft legally. You can get the key if you Google for the official Microsoft download page, too.
    3. No activator necessary. This isn't RTM, the key will activate it, although it should expire in January 2013 or something like that.
    4. Uncrackable - what's that? Won't know for sure until the RTM is released and people attempt to crack it.
