Why there's unique wallpaper set in several confidential Windows 8 builds and never made it to public previews? Image

The Theme2 wallpapers were definitely placeholders, since while they're nice they feel amateurish and they were taken with a bridge camera.

As said, they were just placeholders. They are likely holiday photos made by a Microsoft employee. Who knows, maybe there was a neat story behind the pics and they put them in for that reason, that's the kind of information we aren't privy to.

I've taken the liberty of putting them in a .7z: https://mega.nz/#!IfZQDQoC!EFKGm0rf34cs ... bw-7oU87Mk. You can find more of these beta Windows wallpapers in the OS Mockup/Graphic Kit.

Are there any longhorn wallpapers included in this beta pack? Just wondering. :)

Yes, the OS Mockup/Graphic Kit has many Longhorn wallpapers, along with hundreds of Windows and other OS wallpapers in general.
