    Windows 8 leaked



    You had to know it was a matter of time before Windows 8 showed up on these great internets for all to download -- illegitimately. An early version (6.1.7850) has been making the rounds at manufacturers and it's finally escaped the confines of beta labs. We haven't braved the torrent sites ourselves to download this, and we certainly wouldn't recommend that you do, but the screenshots we've seen definitely peg this particular revision as a slight evolution of Windows 7, seemingly not including all the revolutionary tweaks to come. It's still early days, remember. Plenty of time left for the magic to happen.

    Nice! Still early though, as it looks way to similar to the current Win7. Just the new IE9 icon, user picture near the clock, and the watermark we all seen while testing Win7. Wonder what's going to make it stand out compared to Windows 7. Anyone know any details of features?

    There's also a "login" button at the start window, where your account name is supposed tobe.

    I hope this is just the beggining and change it more, never liked win7.

    It says Windows 7 but the build info shows its Windows 8 Milestone 1. That's what I've been hearing.

    This leaked one wouldn't have much things different from Windows 7 since its only Milestone 1 which was compiled late 2010. Microsoft has already compile Milestone 3.

    I've personally gone Mac OS X 10.6.x and I've never gone back but use Windows XP for other stuff that don't go on Mac.

    Milestone = alpha (rather than beta), right?

    Pretty much. Like an early alpha.

    Neat to know, but without functionality this might as well have been a windows 9 leak, lol. Nice behind the scenes peak though. I fix pc's on the side and that not genuine message in the corner is also in win7 when they have a bootleg copy.
