I wish they would leak a picture or something before the developer preview.

According to Brad, there's not much difference between the current builds and Win 8.1

Well, depends on what is 'not much' every week they are adding new features (roughly) like virtual desktops, charms bars moving away, cortana...so it is different.

Not worth the risk IMHO, it still looks a lot like what they showed off at BUILD but with more features.

I expect screenshots at least as we get closer to winter, still too early.  Leaking a build is very hard now but if not a full desktop screenshot then a cropped bit showing some of the new stuff should be possible to post without it being traced back later on once more OEMs etc have builds, because at that point it'll be hard to track.  Right now I figure because it's so early in the process only a select few have specific builds with the new things in them, so that narrows down the list of leakers quite a bit.

 

Just have to wait, I think it makes it more exciting though.

In your opinion, is it "enough"?

 

I mean, enough to combat OSX Yosemite, shake off the Windows h8?

 

And is the charms able to be reactivated?

That was an MBA project presented to Microsoft - not a real MS project. http://imbaexperienc...eets-microsoft/ | slide deck: http://www.slideshare.net/LuChen12/windows-365-nyenrode-imba-presentation

Nah, I don't really care what MYCE found about non-MS guys, it's what @h0x0d found in MS guy's linkedin profiles that's interesting, hopefully more of these would come up eventually.

 

btw, I guess you had mentioned some Windows build 98xx, maybe this post by @arseny in MDL could be interesting:

"Windows Phone current: Although the phone about screen says OS version: 8.10.12397.895, that does not easily tell us the actual version of the Windows Phone OS. We need to mount a .ffu image of a firmware intended for flashing to know this for sure, since the above notation is custom versioning of the platform. Let's take for instance the latest Lumia 930, so if we mount the firmware, we can find out that the build of the underlying Windows 8.1 that the Windows Phone 8.1 OS is based on, is 6.3.9651.0.winbluephone_rtm.140521-1530 (those who wish to confirm, may do so). This if we don't include the phoneOS-specific tweaks, which cause them to rebuild it with the custom versioning using the Windows Phone buildmachine, causing for it to be 8.10.12397.895.wpbldlab.140530-2215 as per the buildinfo.xml that is included in the archive by the above link."

 

And I had some ask-around and discussed with arseny later:

Seems there is actually no rule against WinBlue or WinThreshold to use build nos. higher than the win9 prototype build No. 9622, i.e. WinBlue, WinThreshold and Win9 could all share build nos. higher than 9622. :)

Who knows, it might not even have icons in the traditional sense at all.

The splash screens of Threshold builds have been updated to say 'preview'.

I wonder if they finally took the time to update the installer itself, it's still got ties to the old Vista/Windows 7 days till you hit the post install process.

Do you know for what it "Preview" says? "Windows 9 Preview"? Or do you only know it now says "Preview".
