DeviantArt user Misaki2009 has published the following screenshots that are allegedly of Windows 8 – 6.2.7867.0.101020-1800 on his dA page:

The significance is that this user allegedly has ties to the Russian leaking community.

Interesting. Leaks may have started seeping out from Microsoft…

I’ll keep you posted.

  • Cool. From the screenshots, it looks like the IE9 RC will let you have tabs on a new line. That’s a commonly requested feature.

    • None of the leaked screenshots of IE9 RC from more reputable sources show this functionality, either, which would presumably be pretty big news – another reason I’m leaning cautiously towards this image being a mockup or a plain fake.

      For what it’s worth, the “real” rc seems to have changed the tab style to be less round, instead opting for a sharper, square look. Seems odd that they would double back on a minor ui change like that, whilst adding a fairly major feature like this.

      Additionally, though it’s not necessarily verifiable, I believe that Microsoft has not yet ever had an OS pre release version with this kind of watermark, though I would be willing to overlook that if there weren’t so many other discrepancies.

  • I’m going to call fake on this one, provisionally. The only way that we can get proof of a valid leak would be if they released the setup.exe from the install disk, so that we can verify that it has a valid digital signature.

    Screenshots don’t cut it, and if they refuse to leak the actual bits, this,d be the only other way.
