NeoWin writes Microsoft has reportedly reached Milestone 2 in the development of Windows 8:
Windows 8, the codename for the next major operating system from Microsoft, may have already passed Milestone 2 progress. According to a Russian website winreview.ru, via win8beta.com, Microsoft compiled the build "Windows 8 Milestone 2: 6.2.79xx.0.winmain_win8m2.xxxxxx-xxxx" recently.
News of this build comes just days before CES 2011, meaning Microsoft might have a sneak preview for a select few, but the chances are very unlikely. The emerging details mean that Microsoft is already working on Milestone 3, which is expected to be completed by the end of February 2011.
