The first batch of Windows 8 ads have been leaked to the public via Youtube. This development comes before the operating system’s official release, scheduled for 26 October. The ad was uploaded not by some hacker hailing from the US or China, but rather the the Techo-hub that is Israel. Yes Israel. Israeli website, Techit, has leaked four separate videos all of which showcase the enhanced interactivity that Microsoft’s new OS offers. Its displayed on a tablet device, most likely the Surface, which is also set for release on 26 October.

The visuals look strong and are designed to give users the same interface across various devices. It still waits to seen if speeds shown in the ad will match those of the “real-world”. A lot of emphasis has been placed on the use of applications and seamless transition between them. Placing heavy significance on the look and feel of Windows 8. The aim of which is to make it more of an intuitive experience, channeling much of the philosophy that has made Apple as popular as it is today.
