A user on vimeo released a concept for Windows 8, called Concept Copenhagen.
Although the creator is not affiliated with Microsoft, this concept looks very very promising. I really wish that Microsoft hires that person, because he definitely knows a lot about user behaviour and design.

It’s a bit pathetic, but there are a lot of fake builds popping up. I don’t know why more and more of those fake builds appear everywhere, but I suppose that it’s also part of Microsoft’s marketing strategy to keep the hype alive.

Windows 8 Pre-Alpha Build 7302
Windows 9 Pre-Alpha Build 7304
Windows 9 Pre-Alpha Build 7312
Of course Microsoft’s Windows 8 is not even in alpha status, but many fans are hard at work creating themes, wallpaper, logos, designs, screenshots, fake builds, torrents and more for Windows 8. By now there’s a huge Windows 8 community!
One designer made a great Windows 8 theme that you can use to turn Windows XP into the operating system of the future. The author calls it “a touch of the future”.
This is by now one of the best looking Windows 8 themes, it’s really professional, but see for yourself:
