Windows 8 Retail Packaging leaks

Microsoft will release Windows 8 and Windows 8 Pro on October 26. The Verge got their hands on a shot of the Windows 8 retail boxes. The new Windows 8 packaging is fairly simple. It's a square box. Windows 8 comes in a white box and Windows 8 Pro in a dark grey one. The illustrations look a bit too retro for my taste. 

I actually never bought a boxed Windows 8 OS. I always get the bulk or OEM version. These have always been much cheaper and who needs the printed Windows manual?
