Windows 8 setup screenshot hints at forthcoming leak

Quote:
A leaked screenshot of an upgrade edition of Windows 8 may hint at a forthcoming leak.

Notorious company insider Zukona unveiled screenshots of an upgrade copy of Windows 8 on Thursday. Although the screenshots only cover the setup process of Windows 8, they do confirm that copies of Microsoft’s next-generation Windows operating system have leaked to company outsiders. It’s not yet clear whether Ivan Zukonov (Zukona) plans to leak the copy of Windows 8 in his possession. Zukona has previously posted accurate screenshots of Internet Explorer 9, Windows 7 and other Microsoft products.

One interesting part of the screenshot is that Microsoft is listing the copyright date of Windows 8 as the year 2012. Some believe the software giant will release Windows 8 in 2013, I disagree however. Microsoft demonstrated build 6.2.7867.0.winmain_win8m1.101020-1800 at CES. The build was compiled in October 2010 and represents Microsoft’s early milestone 1 work. The software giant is currently midway through its milestone 2 cycle and the latest known build is 6.2.7917.0.winmain_win8m2.110125-1757. Microsoft is expected to announce a public beta of Windows 8 later this year.

Thank you to Zukona and canouna for the screenshots. All credit goes to them.


It is worth noting that these screenshots came from an M1 build.

This was Posted On Neowin a while back and confirmed fake

1. Microsoft wouldn't use a copyright year in the future even if that's when it's to be released.

2. Copyrights are printed like this - Copyright 20XX Company Name. NOT Copyright Company Name 20XX.

3. There is no professionalism in the tone of the language used. Sounds like some high school kid scripted the displayed text.

What makes you think Zuko would release fake screens then?

Interesting to say the least... Anyone who was active in the Vista/Windows 7 "leak fests" know about Zukona, and his reputation..

Microsoft would not make such installer with such erros, these obviously look like someone made it. If it was true wzor would have surely displayed it with the proofs

Exactly. Which is why it's confusing me why people are jumping on the "fake" bandwagon (on Neowin)

Who's to say that they aren't testing the installer and not the wording? It is a M1 build after all. Wzor might be working on releasing a statement soon. I think Zuko has been right way too many times to be written off like this

In the screenshot the build is dated back to last year (23.9.2010)
