Windows 8 Milestone 3 version of Windows has leaked – 7989

A new Windows 8 build has leaked. It’s Windows 8 version 7989.

The new build is currently being distributed on FTPs and file sharing sites after an anonymous leakster posted the bits to the win7vista site.

The build is a sample of Microsoft’s work from April with Windows 8 and does not reflect the current state of winmain builds.

The build is currently available on private FTP sites and is expected to be made available on the usual torrent and file sharing sites in the next few hours.

6.2.7989.0.amd64fre.winmain.110421-1825 includes a new wallpaper and unlockable UI bits with the usual red pill trick. It’s not yet clear whether the build includes Microsoft’s new Start Screen interface. Microsoft has also updated the bootscreen to include a betta fish, similar to the one used in Windows 7 beta builds.

Microsoft is currently working on various Windows 8 features and is expected to deliver an early copy to developers at its BUILD developer conference in September. Here’s a round-up of the latest Windows 8 news
