The Verge noticed that the final build of Windows 8 is already available online, just a day after Microsoft announced the operating system's completion. The leaked version is the Enterprise edition of Windows 8, and it's an "N" version without Windows Media Player.
The version leaked is an "N" edition of Windows 8 which does not include a bundled copy of Windows Media Player. Microsoft was forced to create the special N editions of Windows after the European Commission ruled in 2004 that it needed to provide a copy of Windows without Windows Media Player tied in. We reached out to Microsoft to comment and the company says it's not discussing the leak.
