A preliminary build of Microsoft’s Windows 8 desktop operating system has made its way onto the web. Available via illegal download, the software does not seem to have a look and feel all that different from its predecessor — Windows 7.

Regardless: if you’re curious, and would like to have a look for yourself, hit the jump. There are several additional images waiting for you.
