Techit posted the Windows 8 wallpaper, and it’s confirmed that this is the final default wallpaper that will ship with Windows 8. The wallpaper features two daisy flowers surrounded by a clear sky in the backdrop, giving users a small taste of spring in the process.

Microsoft is expected to announce the final build (version 8888) of Windows 8 before the end of the week, and the new OS will make its way into the waiting arms of consumers on October 26th. For now, users can enjoy the new wallpaper, which can be downloaded at the NeoWin source link below.
