Recently we told you how Windows 8 Build 7850 had leaked and was available to download on many different bit torrent trackers etc, now we have looked into the build and can reveal that if you were disappointed by the lack of difference in the screenshots you do not have to worry.

Multiple sources are suggesting that build 7850 is roughly 6 months old and the Milestone 1 build of Windows 8, Microsoft‘s developers are currently working on Milestone 3, apparently this is when we will really begin seeing some vast changes.

We would love to tell you about all of the neat new features and interface tweaks, however as you would expect people are staying quiet, in fact if you are an employee or contingent staff Microsoft warn you very strictly against leaking any details, if you are caught leaking Windows 8 screenshots etc you may be sacked.

This news does at least confirm that the early Windows 8 screens should not be studied too much as they are from an early build, this means that if Milestone 3 screenshots leak we should be in for a real treat… that’s if anyone is brave/stupid enough to leak them.

If and when we come across more Windows 8 screenshots and details we will keep you posted, what new features / changes would you like to see?
