Windows 8 Milestone 3 Server Build 7959 Leaked

It seems like I have missed to cover a lot of important news for my readers due to some problems that I faced for the last few weeks. I missed to cover the leak of Windows 8 Milestone 2 build 7955 last week, but now I am back with the hot news about the latest leak of Windows 8 Milestone 3 Server Build 7959. Earlier, I have shared the news about the leak of Windows 8 Milestone 1.

Much like the previous leaks, this leak is now available on a private FTP server but it is expected to be available soon publicly via torrents. This build, 7959, represents the first M3 build to be leaked. But be warned that this build is said to be very buggy and it is also reported at Betaarchive that this build is not working in VMWare but as you can see in the screenshot below, it seems to be working in VirtualBox.


It should also be noted that this build is a server build, unlike the previous leak (build 7955), which is of Ultimate variety. This build weighs in at 2.87GB and is said to be an x64 build.


Betaarchive states:

Afternoon all,

Wow, another leak! Anonymous again (obviously!).

Microsoft Windows 8 (”Windows 8” 6.2.7959.0) (Enterprise) (m3)
ISO Size: 2.87GB (3,229,550,592 bytes)
ISO MD5: 99375D7782027CBF2E70F5D0F8648406

Earlier we have covered a lot of news related to Windows 8, including leak builds, you can access them all from here. Windows 8 is still not available publicly and is rumored that a public beta may be announced at the PDC later this year. Microsoft is currently working on various Windows 8 features and is expected to deliver an early copy to developers at its Windows Developer Conference (WDC) in September.

It is expected that Microsoft will launch Windows 8 in the late 2012 with the latest rumors suggesting retail availability in early 2013.
