A leak of the Windows 8 Release Preview, which is the final beta-build for Windows 8 before the retail release, has happened over in China, and thanks to the wonderful internet we can see screenshots of it in all of its glory. They did change the design of the desktop, so it seems, but it really isn't as bad as I was expecting. Not everything works in the leaked release, because the Windows servers probably aren't accepting connections yet, but it appears that this is indeed a "legit" leak. I won't steal the glory from where the leak is posted, so go ahead and check it out here. It's in Simplified Han, but I believe all major browsers have translation features. If you're wondering about the US Release Preview, it should be out soon. The "official" time was somewhere in June, but if Microsoft already has a complete Chinese preview, the US one is surely done.
