'''Windows 8 build 8888 (win8 gdr soc intel)''' is an RTM post-escrow build of [[Windows 8]]. The x86 compile of this build was leaked by KiTTY as a "Christmas present" on 2014-12-24. This build is a RTM candidate, but was rejected in favor of 9200 also due to the build number not being divisible by 16, a requirement that was only removed with the [[Windows 10 version 1511|Windows 10 November Update]]. It is not much different from the retail version of 9200, except that it does not contain any Modern apps minus Store and Internet Explorer. On 2018-10-19, the check/debug x64 and ARM compiles of this build were leaked.
