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.

They probably just haven't made it a big deal to recode that dialog box yet. And it's not like they can just have it pull a 'uname -a' or whatever since Windows 7 is really version 6.something and there is divergence in the versioning scheme now.
