Windows 8 Build 8042 is Ready

Microsoft’s Windows 8 has been under development and it looks like the early builds have started appearing. The last build was said to be compiled, earlier this month, on the 7th of July. The 8042 build is a Milestone 3 build and is nowhere close to the final product, should you want to find and try it. WinBeta has revealed that Microsoft is working on a solid build for their BUILD Developers Conference in mid-September. Any other builds in the near future seem very unlikely. Some of the things noticed in recent builds is that Windows Live is a big part of the Windows 8 OS, and it’s being integrated in several areas. Currently, Windows 8 isn’t syncing with any of the Windows Live services online. 

Expect to see more of Windows 8 in September at the BUILD conference

The last build known to have leaked was version 7989. That build included a new booting screen, as well as a fresh new wallpaper. There’s also news that Microsoft employees are using Windows 8. There’s no news on when the next leaked build might come out, but early adopters are already playing around with some of the new features of Windows 8 that is Microsoft’s attempt to build an operating system that’s designed both for PCs, as well as tablets. Many speculated that Microsoft would show a preview build at the Worldwide Partner Conference held a couple of weeks back, instead there was only mention of Windows Server 8 being launched alongside Windows 8.
