New Windows 8 Build – 8141.0.winmain.111021

There’s a new build of Windows 8 that has been reported on the MDL forums.

The Build ID number is 8141.0.winmain.111021 and of course, MDL forums SUPER user Canouna is the culprit behind the spotting.

Some of the new features in the new Windows 8 build include changeable metro background color, Start Screen Metro app zoom features  and other Start Screen tweaks.

Also included in this new build will be Windows Media Center.

Microsoft has not included Windows Media Center in any of the previous Windows 8 builds including the Windows 8 Developer Preview.

This led bloggers and enthusiasts to question Microsoft’s commitment to the media software.

Ater assurances by Microsoft that they would in fact bring back Media Center, it’s nice to see it back in the fold.

Below is an alleged screenshot from the newest version of Windows Media Center.
