Windows It looks like Microsoft's "shhh... let's not leak our hard work" plea to Windows 8 testers has fallen on deaf ears, as an early development milestone of Windows 8 was leaked in the wild. The shots are remarkably boring, since it looks exactly like Windows 7. Duh.

6.2, or better, Win7. The NT kernel is quite good, but not to the point to call it perfect and not work on it anymore. Its like they did nothing since 2006. 6.1 from Win2008R2/Win7 was mostly a bug fix release. I am not saying its a good metric, because I know they dropped some bloat in 6.1, but the overall thread count and file size have not changed between Vista and 7, so even if dropping some code helped keep the ratio, I dont think it account for much. Microsoft love legacy, so they can drop APIs, even hidden ones.
