Windows 8 Installation Screenshots Leak

It is at times as this that I wish that Microsoft would make it impossible for people to leak information about the upcoming operating system. Not because I’m not excited about what the new operating system brings, but about the unfair advantage that some websites get by posting screenshots and other information.

The full Windows 8 installation process from an early M3 build leaked yesterday on Chris123’s NT Corner. It shows screenshots of a stylish installation process that seems to guide the user through the installation by suggestion recommended settings.

Windows 8 will for instance use recommended security, network and locale settings unless you select to customize those options. Most users on the other hand will probably go with the default settings which means that they won’t have to do lots of configuring during installation to install Windows 8.

If you want, you can keep the default recommendations which would mean that you would only had to enter the Windows 8 product key and a name for the computer to complete the installation.

You may also be interested in earlier leaks of the Windows 8 Upgrade Installation, the leaked Windows 8 Screenshot gallery or all previously leaked Windows 8 screenshots.

    You still have to restart your computer? Oh, come on! Seriously?

      Oh… My… Gosh… You have to restart during the installation process!?!?!? End of the world… not like it really matters… is the restart going to interfere with your open applications? of course not, its the installation of Windows. If you are really upset with having to restart during an OS installation, how about go and design an operating system that doesnt require a reboot yourself.

        Did you know that where as the typical Windows installation needs 2-3 restarts to begin using it and set up, a typical Ubuntu installation only needs 1 restart, to use it completely from the hard drive? Now that is innovation. If anything, Microsoft need to work on the basics and convenience first, before designing fancy user interfaces that people won’t really care about.

          Did you know that you’re totally wrong? You only need one restart on Windows. But I understand, you’re a linux fanboy.

            Well, I installed ubuntu as my second OS and I never had to restart to install the new version (like moving from windows 7 to 8). It’s better, yes, and no one needs to be a fanboy to understand that. You must be an idiot to think that innovation only comes from microsoft Desireful…
