    Rumor Smash: Windows 8 App Marketplace screenshots to-date are fake

    Posted: 25 Apr 2011 12:43 AM PDT

    You are not looking at the official Windows App Store or Marketplace

    Unfortunately, not every piece of Windows 8 rumor is real. Windows 8 Center keeps a close watch on its sources and tracks down the reliability of them. However, reality is that the leaked Windows 8 App Marketplace rumors and screenshots to date have been false.

    The application was actually found by several readers and sent to me. After installing, it seems that this “AppMart” program is actually third-party software designed by a Chinese company. If you don’t believe me, you will see that the favicon in the screenshot above and the AppMart logo are the same.

    Thanks to memeandme and LongZheng for pointing this out.

    Windows 8 Build 797x screenshots show new out-of-box experience (OOBE)

    New screenshots of Windows 8 have surfaced, showing a completely new out-of-box experience (OOBE) that we have not seen before. The new screenshots show that the traditional Aero Wizards used in previous post-Windows installation procedures have been abandoned. Instead, a Windows Media Center-like approach has been used, resulting in a much more beautiful and fuller installation experience. The photos have been leaked from a source of Chris123NT.

    The new OOBE experience was originally locked away in Windows 8 Build 7955, but could be unlocked by opening an undiscrete file hidden away deep inside the Windows directory.

    Below are some of the screenshots leaked:
