Well it was not long time ago that we mentioned that a Windows 8 build has leaked to the Internet and it lead to the discovery of a lot of new features that Microsoft is planning to bring in the Windows 8. Many of those we reported in the past included the integration of the built-in PDF reading capabilities in Windows 8 as well as the use of ribbon based user interface to be employed now system-wide. We also mentioned that latest OS from Microsoft is expected to include a built-in webcam capture application.
