I just installed Windows 8 Release Preview on my main system and wanted to learn to develop Metro Apps.

I tried the download here but all I get is a 1 MB file which wants to download stuff over the internet. Since bandwidth is at a premium, I want to download the ISO once and then all my friends and I can use that.

Does anyone know where I can find the ISO?

Thanks, this is what I was looking for. – nikhil Jul 16 '12 at 8:55

If you cannot find the ISO image, you can instead try to setup your dev environment in a virtual machine (with e.g. VirtualBox), and then copy the image to your friends. This way, they don't even need to install Windows 8 themselves.
