Windows 8 OOBE Screenshots

So recently people have been posting many things about various things about Windows 8.  Today I noticed that someone posted a screenshot of the locked OOBE routine in early M3 builds of Windows 8.  Thanks to an anonymous source, I have an array of screenshots of this OOBE routine from one of these early M3 builds of Windows 8.  I am posting below for your viewing pleasure.  Enjoy!

    Very simple design and looks touch friendly too. I don’t like that words like product key are not displayed in full though, hope that is not permanent. Another thing I like is how human the wording is throughout the wizards, very communicative.

      I’m pretty sure that the words getting cut off will be addressed in the future.

        I hope so, just assuming they might be trying to be hip and edgy with this Metro theme philosophy.

      lol, nice catch, that’s the nature of pre-release software. There’s some pretty funny typos going back.

    In the screens where you have to select your language it looks as if they would drop the dropdown arrow.

    that`s bad, `cause microsoft increasingly mimics apple mac`s software….

  • Sinister1

    This looks nothing like anything Apple has; this is fresh and new, this is the Metro UI.
