    Win8 6.2.8175, leak or not ?


    It is a device (tablet and mobile phones) with this assembly 6.2.8175.winmain.111217-1215 will be holding a Sinovski Steve (Steven Sinofsky) and Steve Ballmer (Steven Ballmer) at Consumer Electronics Show CES 2012 that will take place from 10 to 13 in January 2012
    According to a MS China employee, the sign-off of the public beta is expected around mid-Feb, and refering to the WZOR schedule, and also MS has officially announced that the beta release is in late-Feb., don't expect any official release until then. Rumors were flying around that a leak of 8175 is expected soon.

    Some bugs of build 8175
    1) Win+R, then type msconfig, go in startup tab, and click on "Open Task Manager" and you get a "Task Manager has stopped working"
    2) In IE10, go on youtube, open 3 tabs with a video, get a BSOD.
    3) Touch Keyboard is crazy, and if you do a fast typing, he crash.
    4) Software issue: just launch cpuZ make crash your OS.

    Why not just wait for the official? I mean after all it will be out soon enough. I think it would behoove us to see what current software titles can run, and cannot run in Windows 8, and create a complete list of them. I mean unless we want to have a compatibility mode in EVERY version that will ever come out of Redmond till the end of time.
