It can’t get any more official( or secret) than that. The plain-looking white box that Microsoft executives handed HP, Asus, and Acer, contained the RTM build of Windows 8.
Because of security reasons Microsoft had to personally hand-deliver Windows 8 to their hardware partners…
Next came Lenovo, who posed for a picture, after receiving the white Windows 8 box from Microsoft….
The Toshiba team came like giddy children, posing for a group photo and carefully handling the Windows 8 box….
Finally, the day came to an end with the Acer team… after receiving the Windows 8 box… they smiled for a memorable picture.
