Just after news that the final build of Windows 8 was released to manufacturers, it seems that a version of said build has been leaked to various file sharing sites. Although MSDN and TechNet subscribers won’t be getting their copies till August 15, it seems other enterprising individuals may already snag themselves a copy.

The said copy is a “N” edition of Windows 8 that does not come bundled with Windows Media Player. Microsoft had to create N Editions of their OS after the European Commission ruled in 2004 that they needed to provide consumers with a copy of Windows without having Windows Media Player bundled with it.
