Leaks of Windows 9 have been coming out before the Technical Preview of the OS becomes readily available. Just recently, German websites, namely ComputerBase and WinFuture have released 20 screenshots of the Windows Technical Preview that will give us a closer look to the upcoming OS. It has been confirmed that the screenshots are legit! Now, who's excited?

Here are the screenshots and I've included some information:

Start Menu and Search Icon

Screenshot #1: This gives us a first look of the obvious changes to the Windows Task bar.  You will find there the new Start Menu and the Search Icon just beside it.
