Microsoft signed off the Windows 8 RTM yesterday with the retail version coming out on October 26th. Microsoft will also make the RTM available to developers and IT professional on August 15th and to other Microsoft customers starting August 16th. However, it looks like the Windows 8 RTM has already leaked into the wild.
Tom Warren from The Verge reports that the final edition of Windows 8 has already leaked into the wild. The leaked Windows 8 Enterprise edition is reportedly the European version of the software (Windows 8 ‘N’) which usually comes without the Windows Media Player installed in it.
The leaked version of Windows 8 is available for downloads on several fire sharing websites like Media Fire and is also easily searchable on sites like Files Tube. However, unlike all other recent Windows versions, the leaked version will not have all the features available unless you activate it and the earlier Windows 8 product keys will not work to activate the software.

We would advice that you stay away from the current leaked version since it might not work properly and include viruses and Trojans.
