Windows 8 RTM build has already arrived on file sharing sites

Microsoft's Windows 8 OS has just arrived on file sharing sites

That didn't take long, did it? The Release to Manufacturing (RTM) build of Windows 8 has leaked. The leaked build is an 'N' build, which means it doesn't include Windows Media Player. Microsoft were forced to make an 'N' version of Windows after a 2004 European Union ruling mandating the company to provide a copy of Windows that didn't include the media player.

This would annoy Microsoft surely, and a lot of other people considering that developers don't even have their paws on the operating system yet. Another thing to consider is that the OS doesn't arrive until October 26, which is still miles away.

We can't link you to the leaked 'N' build of Windows, but if you do end up using it, we would recommend caution.
