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.

i think i can say some words because, well i tested it.

some new features are missing because this build is from September 2010. We got the almost every build of Windows 7 when it was 2008 but things are changed.

And some features are hidden (remember Windows Superbar from 2008) because they are not fully implemented.

But as you can see in screenshot, there are some new tools like language explorer, system cleanup tool and windows live userbar.

and some more good news. microsoft is making a "most needed aero capabilites enabled theme with lower requirements" or "aero lite".

i think we can get a more new build by may.

by the way: sorry for my english.

Your English is better than mine, and it's my native tongue.

Anyway, looking forward to the beta next fall. Sounds like some great new features in the pipe. Windows 7 was good enough that I did not mind switching to it from OS X (originally for curiosity, but work is a "Windows Shop" and anytime I hit some incompatibility, the tech dept. gave me grief about it) and have been with it since the beta version came out.

I imagine 8 will be another solid leap.
