Notes provided by the leaker:
You can unlock the following:
- Ribbon UI
- Application Folder (now working, in 7850 it was broken)
- Full DWM (hideblur)
The following requires the ''red pill'':

- TaskUI (new taskmanager)
- PDF Reader
- Immersive Browser
Previously, Neowin has covered information that leaked out from build 7955 which can be viewed here. As this is a later build, it is expected that users will be able to unlock features that have previously not been seen.
Windows 8 is far off from public availability and it is rumored that a public beta may be announced at PDC later this year. It is expected that Microsoft will launch Windows 8 in late 2012 with the latest rumors suggesting that retail availability will happen in early 2013.
