Watch Windows 8's new Metro login while this creepy guy watches you (video)


Remember that leaked build of Windows 8 that hit the torrents just a few days back? Already old hat. That was build 7850. Today we've got a peek at what claims to be a newer build, 7955, of the upcoming OS and it's starting to show a few of those Metro flourishes we've all been anticipating. In the video after the break you'll catch a glimpse of a new Windows Phone 7-inspired login screen and the (somewhat perplexing) ability to set a video as your user tile. It's not a drastic overhaul -- it still looks a whole lot like Windows 7, as you'd expect at this stage of the game -- but it's nice to think Microsoft is moving quickly to bring its stunning Metro UI to the desktop.
