It's the creepy wallpaper again!

Earlier this week we heard about a leaked version of Windows 8. Now we have another peek at a newer version.

The leak is 7850, and now a video of 7955 has hit the internet. There aren't any big drastic changes to be seen yet, but it does offer another look at the new login screen (which was not an April Fool's Day joke) as well as animated profile pictures.

    ye glods. More bling. Is there an OS somewhere under all the glitter? What about winfs? file versioning, archival, de-duplicating? virtualisation of every programme? a security model that DOESN'T need software from 3rd parties? or any form of scanning at all? a os-level macro record/playback capability? transparent usb stick, phone, mp3 player operation? A contacts system half as good as KDE3 had?

    Seriously? I can't believe this is even been passed off as news. This has to be the weakest changed feature ever in the history of Operating Systems. It must have taken them about five minutes to engineer those changes. Why would someone even bother filming this. From this, Windows 8 looks like it's going to be more like Windows 7.1.

    It's hard to tell what's more exciting that Video or Watching Paint Dry.

    What's the point in bashing Microsoft for the contents of a leaked video of something that isn't even finished yet, nor intended to be critiqued?

    Well, no. Frankly, I'm surprised nobody spelled Microsoft with a '$' symbol.

    I'm liking the "Shhhh let's not leak our hard work" and the confidentiality notice they zoom in on. A part of me thinks maybe these leaks are actually a subtle form of viral marketing... then I remember that microsoft's marketing department has never managed that level of sophistication.

    Still, I simply can't get as excited over windows 8 as it isn't the long-awaited replacement for a decrepit old OS (XP) and a truly awful newer one (Vista). I have yet to see a compelling reason to switch from windows 7; most of what I have heard thus far has put me off:- cloud computing + cloud DRM + ribbons everywhere...

    Problem, Micro$ux?

    Maybe I'm wrong I didn't see anyone bashing Microsoft everyone was bashing the Video because it was crap.

    If it had a bit more than just someone messing about at the logon screen the replies would have been different.
