Windows 7 Milestone1 leaked on Torrent trackers

An early Windows 8 build has finally leaked and will soon be accessible to the general public. While we’ve seen leaked screenshots that clearly indicate some users have been using for a while — after all partners have access to Windows 8 builds on Microsoft Connect — it appears that this is the first leak that anyone will be able to download.

The build that has leaked has the following file name: “6.1.7850.0.winmain_win8m1.100922-1508_x86fre_client-enterprise_en-us.iso.” In other words, this is quite an old build, given that it is from Milestone 1, screenshots for which leaked three months ago. In fact, the build string shows that 7850 was compiled on September 22, 2010.

As such, if you grab this build, you won’t see many of the leaked and rumored features we’ve seen so far. That means no native SmartScreen file checking, no built-in PDF reader, no Office ribbon in Windows Explorer, no new logon screen, no system reset feature, and no other features we’ve discussed but don’t have screenshots for yet. In other words, it will look very close to Windows 7.
