In a new tweet sent out today, Mega-leaker Canouna announced that Microsoft is close to completing Windows 8. He also tweeted out a build number: 8888.16384.win8_rtm.120724-1555.

Here’s the tweet:

The amount of eyes watching for the release of Windows 8 RTM at this point is pretty nuts. There are even informal polls going on in the forums regarding which geographical region will leak it first.

It is pretty much gospel in hacker circles that Windows 8 should be complete and ready to go sometime this weekend. The race to get this leaked across the globe will begin immediately.


There, I said it.
