    And I KNOW you are not referring to teeth when you said "he had a few too many".

    In the beginning he said he hasn't installed Windows 8, so where is he getting his info and opinions from?

    Windows 8 Consumer Preview to be build 8250?


    If you have been around Neowin long enough, we are talking years, you will know that a build number is something many people track. As the for the upcoming Consumer Preview, Win8China is stating that the build for that product will be 8250.

    Why is this important? For one reason it can give us a benchmark as to how close the latest leaks are to the build that will eventually land on our own machines on February 29 and for those keeping score, it looks like Windows 8 is currently at build 8227 which means there are still several iterations to go before we see the actual build that will land on the 29th.

    Good news, thanks Jan.

    Wonder if the long silence will be broken by a leak?

    The fact that Microsoft has finally found a way (carrot and stick) to stop testers from leaking must please them no end as the techies and other interested parties have whipped themselves into a frenzy and by the time it is released it will be like feeding time in the shark tank.
