    New Leaked Windows 8 Screenshot Reveals Some Evolution, Albeit Minor


    Yes, the Windows client is evolving (could it be any other way?), and a recently leaked Windows 8 screenshot seems to be offering a glimpse of one change introduced since Windows 7 was released.

    As it’s heading toward Milestone 3, Windows 8 becomes available for testing to more and more early adopters.

    Illustrative of this is the fact that leaked information and screenshots of Windows 7’s successor have started to increase in numbers, although one can hardly speak of a real volume of insights into the development of Windows vNext.

    Leaked Windows 8 Screenshot reveals first Windows Update Changes.


    Just a quick post here; and before we receive a wave of hate comments, please don’t forget Windows 8 Milestone 2 is still to be finalized. It is very likely that we will not see any aesthetic changes until Milestone 3, as we had seen in history with Windows 7.

    That being said, it was the small changes in Windows 7 that mattered most, and we are starting to see the same kind of philosophy being incorporated into Windows 8 design.

    The first notable change is the Restart if required box, which will hopefully reduce the likelihood of seeing the “Please restart for Windows Update to complete” warnings.

    No rudeness or offence intended but.
    There are many threads now, similar to this, on web forums. But can anyone point me to a statement from Microsoft, or its senior and reliable personnel, where it is said that the next OS will be called Windows 8? ( No quotes or redirects please)
    In fact, I feel the rumours (There I go) are quite the opposite. Any alleged info and reproduced screen shots etc, showing the OS as Windows 8, I would say are definitely suspect.

    The screenshot fits well with my query. Nowhere does it say "Windows8"

    Hey davehc, we call it Windows 8 because we don't have any other codename to call it by yet.

    Windows 8 is also quite often mentioned by for instance Microsoft staff. Here's a good example: Microsoft employees reveal some Windows 8 tidbits

    Zen has it right. It is just a code name, as there have been for legacy OS's (Vista was not called Vista during the early milestone writing stages. I believe it was first revealed as "Vista" with the beta.)
    As I said though, I am not out to start an argument - it is purely academic interest. I just feel that we are jumping the gun a little There are several forum owners, apart from this one, who have titled new forums with the "8" tag.
