Windows 8 Build 7989 leaked

Fresh screenshots from a Milestone 3 copy of Windows 8 leaked to the Internet on Friday.
Read more here


The article is brief, but it shows 2 out of 4 new screenshots of the build 7989, a Milestone 3 copy built in April. BetaArchives members seem to be both trying to get and leak this built, while also discussing whether this is actually real or not. The topic can be found here. I hope the thread title is not misleading, so let me just state that, as far as I know, build 7989 is not an official beta, or any other "officially" released build, for that matter.

Ah, so the title was corrected... No matter, probably for the best :)

This time, I am definitely downloading the build and finally testing it out. I made backups of all my data this time ( xD ) so I won't care even if I run into trouble.

According to WinRumors the build leaked as early as Saturday, so we should be getting better ways of getting it pretty soon :D

Thread Title was corrected because I don't know where you got the idea this might have been the Beta version from. Don't want to confuse people.

Do you think that I can burn ISO image to USB Pendrive instead of DVD disc? (i.e. Like Windows 7) I have booting from USB option and it works nice with Win7.
