  1. What a lie, you seem to be following other sham blogs for posting these ridiculous posts with commonly available images. Did you Google this image and post it on your blog?
    I have seen this picture way too many times on other websites. Do you honestly believe that Microsoft will use such images for a logon screen.
    Are you a data farmer or just have a very low I.Q.?

    • @Yate,
      I dont understand which blog are you calling it Sham blogs. If you have read clearly my post, it says it is a development build and its a real image from MSFT.

  2. Nirmal,

    Thank you for your reply. But I must assure you that this is fake. This image has been around for as long as I can remember. Microsoft will not pick an image from Google. For long it has been available as an HD wallpaper.

    See these links to find out how common this image is:

    Moreover, do a Tin Eye reverse lookup of this image to understand my point further.

    Can you please provide me with a legitimate Microsoft link that affirms your claim. If so then I shall be the one to apologize.

    • @Yate,
      This is not a new wallpaper, nobody said that. In fact this wallpaper was officially shipped by Microsoft in Windows 7, check your Windows 7 installation if you have one. And there is no rule that MSFT cant use a wallpaper from previous version, after all its a test build. If you want more info, apply the “Characters” theme “officially” shipped by Microsoft.

    • @Yate,
      Moreover here the emphasis is not on the wallpaper, but how the Logon UI will look especially with the Metro theme carried fwd from WP7. I hope you got it. IF you need more details on this, let me know.

  3. May I ask where is the Microsoft Link?
    Yes I do have a Windows 7 Ultimate edition and I am an IT professional myself.

    So you claim its a leaked logon scree image. Well if thats true when the new Windows OS comes then I shall return to this post with my humble apology. In the meantime I even doubt that it will be called Windows 8.

    Thank you for your point of view Mr Nirmal, but I must add that I have used everything from Windows 95 to Windows 7 Ultimate edition.

    And Microsoft does not use wallpapers for logon screen backgrounds.

    Good Luck

    • @Yate
      And you are asking a MSFT link for a leaked screenshot. I have been a blogger for more than 5 years and know how important leaks are. Anyways there isnt any point arguing, may be best solution would be for you to keep your views and I keep mine. Lets wait till the final release of “next” version of Windows.

    • @Yate,
      A quick note, if your email provided here is correct, I’ll definitely mail you once I have concrete evidence, in either way.

  4. Can I get high resolution wallpaper of same design plz. Windows 8 wallpapers
