Microsoft has done pretty well with their latest Operating System – Windows 7. Rumours now doing the rounds speak about Microsoft doling out pre-release builds to various OEMs including HP.

3D capable?

According to Winrumors, Microsoft is distributing build 7971.0.110324-1900 of Windows 8, which is said to be a really early pre-release build of the OS. Microsoft is using their Connect external testing system to distribute the Milestone 3 build. It is also being said that the program is being advertised as “Windows 8 and Server vNext Pre-Release Program” on Microsoft’s connect site and accessing the program requires a special invite code.

Other news of the latest iteration of the popular operating system speak about Windows 8’s interface being fully 3D compliant. The new OS will supposedly have a faster “hibernate” system which will take a whole of 3-6 seconds and save all open documents and currently running tasks. Plus it’s also being said that there will be a dual-UI option with a tile-based UI codenamed Mosh also included to the current layout.

The last of all is that the Microsoft might be looking to release the beta version of Windows 8 sometime in September this year and while all the rumours listed above look neat, we still advise you to take it with a pinch of salt!
