The first consistent leaks of Windows 8 have brought with them a taste of some wallpapers currently available with the early development milestones of the operating system.

The two images included with this article, courtesy of Win7China are screenshots of the background images available with a Milestone 2 Build of Windows vNext.

Somewhat ironically, both wallpapers contain the same message: “shhh… let’s not leak our hard work.”

Obviously, the background images have made it into the wild along with additional leaked content from the next major iteration of the Windows client.

According to the source of the leaks, the wallpapers come from Windows 8 Build 7910.winmain.110111-1804, an interim release which was wrapped up on January 11, 2011.
