it has been an meaningful couple of weeks for Microsoft. The Redmond-based firm declared its new coming operating system had reached RTM and the code was subsequently leaked out to torrent sites in record time. Speculation also comes to circulate relate to Microsoft’s decision to abandon the Metro branding for the tiled interface central to Microsoft’s Windows 8, with reports showing to a potential trademark dispute.
Now, in a less dramatic improvement, The Verge has told what appears to be the final packaging designs for the boxed versions of Windows 8 that will be available in retail stores when the operating system releases later this year.
As previously revealed, there will be only two full retail versions that’s first one is Windows 8 and second one is Windows 8 Pro. The overall appearance of the boxes is simple, featuring the “Windows 8 style UI” logo conspicuously on the front, wrapped in slim style cases and operate with different colors (white or black) to differentiate them.
Microsoft’s latest OS reached its release to manufacturing (RTM) milestone last week, indicating the last stage of development before worldwide launch. Just a day later then release of the European “N” version, which comes without Windows Media Player, was found several torrent sites.
Microsoft’s Windows 8 is slated to come in stores and on new computers and tablets, like the Surface Tablet PC on October 26, with their next-generation Windows Phone OS coming on smartphones around the same time.
