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.

No x86 versions huh?
Guess I'll have to sit-out this time until I get my x64 capable machine next week.

Nar, you could use the ISO to install it as a virtual machine using VirtualBox. :)

I guess I could try the x64, but with my 2 gigs of RAM and a dying GPU, I wonder how it's gonna perform...

You are uploading at 50kb's you will get a higher speed but if you only upload at Eg, 5kb's you don't get a faster download rate.

It would be a pain if those pills don't work with this build and we would have to wait for a newer version xD

Gonna try and install this build now from USB (no more DVDs, all spent on Linux distributions xD)


EDIT: Installed. IE9 is a bit buggy, but the OS seems stable enough. It does require the pill, however, as there is absolutely nothing new worth mentioning. So far it looks like a beta of 7, not 8
