Holy cow! Windows 8 is really being developed! In this video demonstration, Windows 8 Forums takes a final look at Windows 8 Build 7989. We specifically address claims about authenticity in this video by activating some of the hidden and unfinished features in this build. Build 6.2.7989.0.amd64fre.winmain.110421-1825 is a real version, despite comments that were made on our previous video in this series. The goal of this video is to once again introduce the viewer to alpha software in its most primal state, explain the dangers associated with intellectual property theft, and analyze the potential future of the Microsoft Windows family of client operating systems from a far distance.
However, this go around, we will also show some of the features which are intentionally disabled by default. We do not show the Metro UI. The goal of showing these features, with built-in subtitles, is to explain how Windows operating systems have been developed in the past, and how sites like Windows8Forums.com and Windows7Forums.com have been able to confirm the authenticity of OEM Service Packs and RTM versions of Microsoft software. In almost every instance, a segment of viewers make claims that this is not legitimate. We do this, err'ing on the side of responsibility, but excited that such features exist and are being worked on.
We would like to take this opportunity to again declare our respect and admiration for the Windows 8 Development Team. We hope to show that Windows 8 is a work in progress. This means, that just like Windows 7 and Windows Vista, individuals who see screenshots and videos of Windows 8 are going to have to live with the fact that it looks like a prior version of Windows until the operating system becomes feature complete.
We know Windows 8 will build excitement and will be a great success. The goal of this video is to prove that we are evaluating legitimate software.
Windows8Forums.com provides an open, online community to visitors from around the world. It is an off-shoot of the much more successful Windows7Forums.com. Administered and operated by Microsoft MVP award winners and certified professionals, we hope that this video will be seen as characteristically unbiased and straightforward by the viewing public. With Windows 8 laid bare, Microsoft has opened the groundwork for an entire next generation of operating systems that will enrich the lives of end-users and consumers around the world. This is the second and final part of a series of videos about Windows 7 Build 7989 and is a direct response to our YouTube viewers.
Viewers should know that the operating system has a long way to go and this, in not the way the operating system will look or function when it is complete. We are excited and proud to be a part of a community so passionate about technology and software. The next version of Microsoft Windows offers us "no compromises", and we like that approach.
