Poor Microsoft just can’t keep anything secret. Today the Release Preview version of Windows 8, which will be released in the coming days, has leaked out to P2P. The build, which is labeled 8400, hit bit torrent and is spreading quickly. Numerous sites have already posted screenshots of the next version of the operating system.
The build, which is offically 8400.0.WINMAIN_WIN8RC.120518-1423_X64FRE_CLIENT_ZH-CN-HRC_CCSA_X64FRE_ZH-CN_DV5, contains 3 new Metro-style apps from Microsoft – News, Sports, and Travel – as well as built-in support for Adobe Flash. The web site Winunleaked confirmed the legitimacy of the leaked copy and also provides links if you are so inclined to try it out. I recommend extreme caution with any such download.
Windows 8 Release Preview is expected to be released in early June and will be available in both 32-bit and 64-bit versions. If you can’t wait another week then check your P2P client, but make sure you install it on a PC that you don’t mind experimenting with and is insulated from the rest of your network. Better yet, just wait a few days and get it directly from Microsoft.
Feeling a 100% better and it is time to have a serious discussion about privacy and actions in the internet and public space. Looking for your feedback in a big way on these issues. Lots of great tech stories to share with you tonight as well.
Hey folks have a serious case of the crud but the show must go on.. Probably better to listen to this one versus watch ;). Minor schedule changes on my Indy trip but a log going on here getting ready for the new quarter.
April is going to be simply a crazy month, so I am prepping the travel studio to take the road show to a whole new level. Lets see if we can get green during the road show :). Laid back Hawaiian style show tonight Geek fans.
Had a great first day here in Silicon Valley. Had some really good meeting plus one additional meeting here at the hotel that really could open up distribution of this shows and those of our content creators at RawVoice.
Going to be implementing some Studio upgrades in the next couple of weeks should be fun. I go after a couple of my state legislatures pretty hard tonight on two idiotic bills that they introduced. Also hope I was not to punchy on the last show notes. I am feeling much better by the way and although the voice is not a 100% I feel a 100% better.
