Microsoft’s secretive project known as Windows 8 has been leaked to the internet today. Although this may be an older build, it still proves that Microsoft’s secret is not a secret anymore.
The build string is: 6.1.7850.0.winmain_win8m1.100922-1508 and has been leaked to torrent sites and various other FTP file sharing sites out there.
This is an older build (Milestone 1) that does not showcase the new features seen in recent leaked screenshots, so don’t get your hopes up too much. To give you an idea, build 7867 was showcased at CES 2011 while this build is 7850. It is unlikely that we will see any new features in this older build. For example, a new feature called Auto-Colorizaton will allow the operating system to find a quick match between an ideal Aero theme color and the desktop background. It is unknown and doubtful that this new feature is in this early preview build.
Microsoft has remained tight lipped about its upcoming flagship operating system, Windows 8. We have seen numerous leaked screenshots and details that slowly reveal Microsoft’s hard work on Windows 8.
