Looks like it could be fun to dive into the beta scene again :)

The reason why I signed up for Neowin those long years ago anyways! :yes:

There's not much of a beta scene anymore. Back during the XP days and to a lesser extent the Vista days there was. But now? No way. I don't consider seeing one or two previews enough to spark a beta scene. I lost interest after Windows 8 to be honest.

Why do all the screenshots crop the desktop so much? We can't even see the taskbar for example.

That's what happens when Microsoft doesn't communicate accurate information to the public.

While I agree that they haven't said much if anything on the other hand it's also backfired on them when they talk things up way in advice and things don't work out and end up dropped or changed. I think it's good to talk about it when they're close to releasing something to users.

There is one, in the second picture you can see the very top of it a bit.

It doesn't sound like just a service pack really.

This actually could be real, it could be the login page for the Microsoft Internal Network (I can't remember what it's called exactly) that stores all the things Microsoft are working on, it's where people like Canouna and superDAE got there information and ISO's from.

An XP SP2-like service pack. I think it'll be closer to what Windows 98SE was to Windows 98.

No idea, but looking closer at the image, the text on the Microsoft Employee tile is much lower than the text on the other 3 tiles

Not sure why anyone would fake something like that though, usually fakes are of the desktop / version number etc

And who confirmed Win8 is a total failure? Or is this just your own bias against the OS?

Seconded. For me personally, Windows has become like Chrome or a web browser, just another update. If it comes, whoopee! Personally, I think Vista's gestation, Windows 7's stability from beta and Windows 8's non-existence of beta has kinda left me jaded.

[/quote]MS Corpnet. Actually the pic also came from soft-forum from [i]microsofter[/i].

btw, I suspect(it's just a guess) canouna has lost his corpnet login after win8 RTM'ed, or maybe he's on a more strict NDA.

Big deal. I can get to the same page - it's a standard sign-in page for Microsoft employees and partners. Not exactly hard to get to. I'd be more interested if the guy managed to sign-in.

Something like a "backpage news" : If you search for windowsblue.com; it was registered by MS in 2012, long before win8 RTM

[img]http://i411.photobucket.com/albums/pp197/faikeef/screen1218.jpg[/img]

Well, it seems MS had wanted it to be the winblue site? Then hit windowsblue.com......LOL, seems they lost interest in using this URL afterall. :laugh:

Presently there is a general mist of mystery(or expectation) around, a guy uploaded a file to a host site

[img]http://i411.photobucket.com/albums/pp197/faikeef/screen1220.jpg[/img]

It's just a text file reading:
9410131a8b705a7113628d23e3e795e8 *9347.0.WINMAIN_BLUEM1.130220-1500_X64FRE_CLIENT_EN-US-IM1_CCSA_DV5.ISO
is

The time stamp 1500 is different from the 1504 posted by Khohol in his soft forum post, and the hash may be fake, or somebody said it is actually the x86 hash (2.41G). People are hoping that it is a prelude to leak, just wait and see. :o

We haven't seen leaks like we used to, besides I'd much rather wait for m2 which should be closer to RTW if the rumors are true.
