As the official release date of Windows 8 draws closer, more and more people are eager to grab a copy of the operating system ahead of schedule. Microsoft has found themselves unable to contain leaks which they have so successfully prevented during the previous month. Last week the Enterprise N edition leaked to the web. Yesterday, both 32-bit and 64-bit of Windows 8 Pro RTM were leaked to file sharing sites.
The leaked Windows 8 Professional RTM can be installed with either a retail product key or a VLK (volume licensing key). My Digital Life, writes:
Several retail product keys and VLKs have also been leaked, where one of the product key allows the Windows 8 Pro to be installed, while another product key (with WMC suffix) to allow the Windows 8 installation to add Windows features to install the WMC (you need to input the new product key after installation to get WMC). Another product keys can be used to install the Core.
With these product keys, Windows 8 Pro can be installed and run properly, but cannot be activated properly, until you purchase a valid product key, or until an activation crack appears.
