We've seen screenshots with that wallpaper a couple of months ago, so it's nothing terribly new - though it does add credibility to these being real.

Since I'm around forum wise...

I'll just say this its not unknown if its real its a fact as I have a few sources.

7989 Build: Confirmed.

Will it Leak: Check back in a few days...

I'll confirm it does have a windows 8 splash screen thou but gonna flatten some rumors. I do not have the build.

Given the fact that nothing is surprising in the tech universe if you know whats coming its actually quite boring to watch.

Wow maybe the System Reset/Restore to Original Factory Settings feature uses SysPrep. I always felt Sysprep was an underutilized feature.

You'd better be patient. Since leaking it may leads to finishing of another employeer in Microsoft

And cool to hear about new build :)

Why does the build "have to leak" if the hash is leaked? It's not because 7955 leaked after the hash leaked that it's the same now.

At second screen, it looks like it will expire next year, though. And yet, I see there will be a new wallpaper at the first screen—as well there's a sorta login screen (or boot screen) with Betta fish on it.

7989 = new aero, new metro login (D9), new wallpaper, full Ribbon, and we will see the rest after the leak...

Well. I would like to believe this is real be because they're photographs of a monitor and not a screenshot - But then again, a little bit of Photoshop and F11 in a browser can change that.

All it takes is one weak link in the chain of trust for it to land on the BetaArchive FTP Server.
Or canouna has been trolling us.

Yes there is. You can either modify system files or open up Photoshop.
