Windows 8 build 8102 (winmain_win8m3_eeap) is a build of Windows 8, which was shared onto the BetaWiki Discord server on 31 December 2021. This build was released to Microsoft partners through the Ecosystem Engineering Access Program (EEAP) and as is common for such builds coming from EEAP branches, it had the entire Metro user interface stripped out at compile time and therefore cannot be redpilled.
