Yesterday Microsoft announced that they had finished the latest version of their OS, Windows 8 and it had reached the RTM stage (release to manufacturing).
Now it would appear that the final version of Windows 8 has been leaked online, although it will not actually be available to MSDN and TechNet customers until the 15th of August.
The leaked version of Windows 8 is reported to the the ‘N’ edition, which comes without Windows Media Player, Microsoft created this version without Windows Media Player after the European Court ruled back in 2004 that Microsoft have to offer version of Windows without the WMP included.
The guys over at The Verge have contacted Microsoft about the leaked version of Windows 8, and Microsoft’s response is that they are not discussing the leak.
