In the months leading up the official launch of Windows 8, we have seen various leaks including the recent Windows 8 Enterprise N leak—which has the Windows Media Player stripped.  The most recent leak, however, has Windows Media player intact. 

Russian leaker WZOR has confirmed that a Windows 8 Pro version x64 and x86 will be “released soon.”  Windows Server 2012 was also leaked yesterday via the same source (WZOR), and the Windows 8 Pro RTM build would mostly likely be distributed via popular torrent sites, among other sources.

Microsoft announced that Windows 8 Server 2012 won’t launch until September 4, and Windows 8 on October 26, but apparently both RTMs have already been leaked. 

Microsoft has been able to keep its internal builds from leaking during the test phase, but apparently once an RTM version is released to partners; the leaks go viral—nothing new.
