Microsoft has been keeping a tight lid on details about Windows 8. So far, information about Windows 7’s successor has been either based on remarks slipped out by Microsoft officials or rumours. However recently the Russian website, WZor, has revealed some interesting titbits.
The site claims that Microsoft has started the engineering of Windows 8. It even mentions details about builds that havebeen already compiled:
From the build strings, it can be found out that they have been compiled at the end of January. Assembly of more builds is expected. Those who’ve been following up during the days of Windows 7 development should be familiar with WZor, which had been providing accurate details about Microsoft products, particularly Windows 7 and Office 2010. Nevertheless, such information should be taken with a grain of salt.
But what else does this mean? I believe this indicates that more news is yet to come, hopefully from Microsoft sources such as The Windows Blog. Personally, I’ve missed the days when leaks used to come one after another and when we used to argue whether Windows 7 has been released to manufacturing or not. Although, it might be a bit early, I’m anxious about testing Windows 8. What do you think? Do you have high expectations for the operating system?
