Windows 8 RTM leaks to file sharing sites
| by Aneez Shaikh |
While Microsoft fans and PC users are eagerly waiting to get their hands on the upcoming Windows 8 OS, Windows 8 has already made its way online. Although MSDN and TechNet customers won't officially receive access to the final Windows 8 bits until August 15, an Enterprise version of Windows 8 is available widely across various file sharing sites, reports The Verge. What’s really baffling is that the news comes only a day after Microsoft announced that they had completed all development work on the OS.
The report further states that the version leaked is an "N" edition of Windows 8 which does not include a bundled copy of Windows Media Player. Microsoft was forced to create the special N editions of Windows after the European Commission ruled in 2004 that it needed to provide a copy of Windows without Windows Media Player tied in. Microsoft is tightlipped over the leak.
Windows 8 RTM leaked online
Screenshots of the Windows 8 RTM installation were leaked yesterday by Darrenwbaker.com and later mirrored by Neowin.net. Now, the whole OS is available online for you to download and try, provided you don't mind using pirated software.
October 26 is the official date scheduled for Windows 8 to hit the shelves for retail users, but if you are low on patience, then an online search on file sharing websites might make you happy.
