Windows 8 Final Build Leaks Online
Posted 03 August 2012 - 10:41 AM
The final build of Windows 8 has leaked to the internet, just a day after Microsoft confirmed it had finished the development cycle for the new operating system. Although MSDN and TechNet customers won't officially receive access to the final Windows 8 bits until August 15th, an Enterprise version of Windows 8 is available widely across various file sharing sites.
The version leaked is an "N" edition of Windows 8 which does not include a bundled copy of Windows Media Player. Microsoft was forced to create the special N editions of Windows after the European Commission ruled in 2004 that it needed to provide a copy of Windows without Windows Media Player tied in. We reached out to Microsoft to comment and the company says it's not discussing the leak.

It would be funny if Windows 8 was the least pirated OS due to lack of interest.
Yeah, that OR the most pirated OS because of curious interest but later on abandoned again.

I think you can use it for 30-days at least without activating.
What about the WGA anti-piracy system?
