A second Windows 8 build has leaked and will be soon available for download at P2P sites and through other means. BetaArchive, the forum responsible for leaking Windows 8 M1, has done it once again. This time, they have managed to get hold of Windows 8 Build 7955 (6.2.7955.0). This build is a lot newer than the earlier build. If I am not mistaken, it is the final build of the Milestone 2 (M2) tree.
According to the notes provided by the releaser:
* You can unlock the following:
o Ribbon UI
o Application Folder (now working, in 7850 it was broken)
o Full DWM (hideblur)
* The following requires the ”red pill”:
* Login (that ugly guy with ctrl+alt+del, the fishy wallpaper, pattern login)
* TaskUI (new taskmanager)
* PDF Reader
* Immersive Browser
Sources at Windows 8 Center has confirmed that the leaked build, which is currently available on a private FTP site, is legitimate, and that it is only a matter of time before it makes its way to a public torrent website.
