Windows 8 Build 7850 Leaked, Available for Download
By on April 12th, 2011

It has finally happened! Someone has leaked an internal build of Windows 8. A short while back, Windows 8 Build 7850 was published by Betaarchive, and should appear soon on torrent and other file sharing services.

The build that has been leaked is actually pretty old – older than the build demoed by Microsoft at CES. According to multiple sources, Windows 8 has already reached Milestone III, whereas the leaked release is from the Milestone I days. Officially, the build bears the version number Windows 6.1, and behaves more or less like Windows 7. Even if any major new features are present, they will probably be locked down.

Nevertheless, if you are really desperate to get a taste of Windows 8, keep an eye on your favorite torrent website. The file name of the release is 6.1.7850.0.winmain_win8m1.100922-1508_x86fre_client-enterprise_en-us.iso, and the file size is 2.45 GB (2,637,101,056 bytes). Of course, keep in mind that toying with leaked releases is always fraught with danger. Besides being unstable and unfit for daily usage, there is always the possibility that they might have been tampered with. Don’t install this build unless you know what you are doing, and even then, don’t use it as your primary operating system.
